ICON Schedule

I’m Toastmaster at ICON in Iowa again this weekend, which is always a lot of fun. We’ve got Author Seanan McGuire, Artist Arden Ellen Nixon, Fan Guest Inger Myers, and special author guests Laura Mixon and Steven Gould. As well as lots of other cool people.

I’ll be doing something new this time, too. On Friday from 9-11 p.m., I’ll be doing author photos for anyone who signs up. There’s no charge, but there will be a tip jar, with proceeds going to the Rusty Hevelin Collection at the University of Iowa Special Collections and The Iowa Raptor Project. I’m hoping to have some fun with it.

The full Jim schedule for the weekend is below. Looking forward to seeing folks!
