Connie's ComicCon Schedule (Updated!)

Connie will be doing two panels at the Comic Con International Convention in San Diego and several autograph sessions. Here are the details as they stand now:

Thursday, July 24 5:00-6:00
Looking at Our World: Eye on the Past - Authors discuss how they use and abuse history to inform their fictional stories. Panelists include Connie Willis (Passage), Jacqueline Carey (Kushiel's Legacy), Max Allan Collins (Deadly Beloved), Peter David (Tigerheart), Naomi Novik (Victory of Eagles), and Jess Winfield (My Name Is Will: A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare). Moderated by Maryelizabeth Hart of Mysterious Galaxy. Room 8

Friday, July 25 12:30-1:30 Spotlight on Connie Willis - Time travel, hula hoops, flying saucers, church choirs, and other proofs of Chaos Theory in action! Multiple Nebula and Hugo Award–winning science fiction author and Comic-Con special guest Connie Willis (Doomsday Book, To Say Nothing of the Dog) reveals the outer reaches and inner secrets of writing science fiction. Room 10

Note that both of those rooms seat only around 280-300 people, which could easily fill up with fans. It may seem like a lot, but when there are around 125,000 attendees, the rooms can fill up quickly. The group panel with several notable authors will definitely fill up.
