The kickoff event for every WisCon is a Thursday night reception and Guest of Honor reading sponsored by Madison’s feminist bookstore, Room of One’s Own. In past years, this was held at the Room of One’s Own bookstore, but they have moved to a new location that is not within easy walking distance of the con, so we are now partnering with both Room of One’s Own and the Madison Public Library for this event.
Anyone in town the night before WisCon starts is invited to join us to celebrate and welcome our Guests of Honor at Madison’s Central Library, 201 W Mifflin St, Madison, WI 53703, from 6:00-8:00pm Central time. There will be readings, and books by our honorees will be available for purchase from Room of One’s Own. You do not need a WisCon membership to attend — everyone is welcome.
Room of One’s Own will once again have a presence at the dealer’s room, so be sure to stop by!
