4th Street Fantasy…
continues June 22-24, 2012 in Minneapolis, MN

Once again the 4th Street Fantasy Society is planning a gathering of readers, writers, editors, and supporters of quality fantasy literature who will continue the best conversation on the block.

We begin with our writers seminar (sold out) and continue the best of our traditions with a single-track program in which discussions only begin. 4th Street is not a spectator sport! We are all an integral part of the discussions and the decision-making.

Spring Hill Suites, Marriott
5901 Wayzata Blvd
St. Louis Park, Minnesota 55416
(One block east of the Doubletree)

Hotel reservations can be made via the online reservation system (King Suite or Queen Suite) or by calling the Hotel @ (952) 738-7300 and asking for the "4th Street Fantasy Convention" group rate. The rates are $94/night for a King Suite and $99 for a Queen Suite (plus taxes).

Jim Young Memorial

Jim Young, a major, lifelong fan, and a founder of Minneapolis fandom died suddenly this week. His Memorial Service will be held in Minneapolis on Friday, June 22 at 2:30 p.m. with a reception following.

Fridley United Methodist Church
680 Mississippi
Fridley, Minn. 55432

To honor him and to make it easier for 4th Street folks who would like to attend this memorial we are adjusting our Friday schedule. For those of you who will already be at Springhill Suites for the Com, please gather in Elwood Meeting Room at 2 P.M. so that those who would like to share rides can get together most easily. You may also want to coordinate plans through Facebook or LiveJournal.

Roving Auction

Ellen Klages, auctioneer and finder of strange treasures, will be popping up periodically between program items to auction off curious and wonderful things. Watch for the list of Special Really Cool Somethings, and bid for some nifty items. All proceeds go to make 4th Street better in years to come.

Jewelry Class

Our very talented and generous Elise Matthesen has offered to teach a jewelry making class for any registered 4th Streeter at no cost on Thursday from 3-6 PM. Bring your own tools and materials. If you have any questions head over to her LiveJournal post.
