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.
