A Dance of DragonCon

From beautiful Providence to sultry Atlanta, I whisk from convention to convention, a migrant lanyard-bearing luminary and look that up in your Audubon why don't you.

So here, then, as is my tradition, is my DragonCon schedule for the delectation of all who plan to be there (Atlanta) then (Labor Day weekend). As is also my tradition, I maintain a blithe ignorance on the eventual recording, streaming, or carving into butter of the proceedings.
