CapClave 2012: Where Reading Is Not Extinct

Close to 400 people (many Discworld fans among 'em) will be  gathering in Washington, D.C. this October 12 - 14th for a charming convention "Where reading is not extinct".  It is called Capclave.

The website describes Capclave as a:
 Small relaxed literary convention with a program that usually focuses on the short fiction form. Our Guests of Honor and other notable authors, editors, artists, and fans of the short fiction form will explore the creation and enjoyment of short fantasy and science fiction genre stories.

Past Capclaves have hosted discussions with authors and fans; readings by authors; a dealer's room with books, magazines, artwork, crafts, and other science fiction and fantasy related items; exhibits by artists; space science presentations from NASA; a hospitality suite; room parties; interesting conversations with other fans and professionals; and a relaxed atmosphere for visiting old friends and meeting new friends.

The Washington Science Fiction Association's Small Press Award short list is now out. The winner of this award will be announced at Capclave.

I am told Capclave has a very nice line up of stories this year.  If you live in the area and love reading, this is one convention you won't want to miss.
