3Pi-Con schedule

Here's my schedule for 3Pi-Con in West Springfield, Massachusetts from 22-24 August.

11am: "Does Star Trek Have a Future?" with Hugh Casey, Jeff Warner, Jennifer Williams, and Terri Osborne (Salon A)
12pm: "Comic Book to Film" with Jennifer Williams, Hugh Casey, Melissa Gavazzi, and Gene Kannenberg Jr. (Salon A)

I have nothing programmed on Friday and Sunday, which is just weird. *laughs*

At some point during the weekend, it is likely that Terri and I will be signing The Quality of Leadership at Mike's Comics's table in the dealer room.
