    Harry Potter: The Movie
    Description: How did “The Half Blood Prince” stack up to the book? To the other movies? Does knowing how the book series ends change our anticipation for the last two films (“Deathly Hallows” will be two movies)? Are there actually fans of the movie series who haven’t read the books?

    Co-hosted by Inanna Arthen, Trisha J. Wooldridge, Christy Tohara and Broad Universe. We’ll start when the Hugo Awards are done, which may be earlier or later than 10:00.

I’ll post changes or updates to this schedule when and if they come in. I asked for a reading time and did not get assigned one. I asked again, and so far have not had a response, but I’m still hoping. If you’re going to Anticipation, let me know so we can get together up there! It will be a big convention and you can’t have too many friends in a crowd.
