4th Street Fantasy…
continues June 21-23, 2013 in Minneapolis, MN
What is 4th Street?
4th Street is what happens when everyone goes to programming. A single track of it, so you're never torn between Jane Yolen and Patricia McKillip talking about new myths for old, and Terri Windling, Deb Notkin, and Tom Canty discussing the psychoactive qualities of fantasy.
In fact, 4th Street is a single conversation that starts on Friday evening and ends sometime on Sunday. The participants change over the course of the day and night, but each panel, each party, each conversation in the hospitality suite or the lobby or the hall adds to the members' accumulated knowledge and growing body of ideas and energy.
And it's a conversation, not a lecture. Small convention, smart membership, all of them interested in exploring the boundaries of fantastical storytelling, whether in literature, art, music, comics, or film. Discussing them interchangeably, all on the same panel, finding the things that unite the media of stories.
If that sounds highbrow and stodgy, we've done a bad job. Fourth Street is fun. The excitement of that three-day conversation, of being part of the voyage of discovery, is powerful stuff. And the people you'll be hanging out with are some of the most fascinating we've ever met.
Join us. Have fun. Raise a glass to (temporarily) absent friends. We'll see you in June!
