Boskone 2020
#1
I'm going to Boskone again this year. 

Right now Sharon Lee and Steve Miller report that they are guest of honor at the "Con within a Con", i.e. NarniaCon. 
This being, appropriately enough, a mini convention in the coat check room. 
Last year the cloak room sponsored a mini-rubber-duckie contest, and this year they are running a game of clue. 

Other than the standard convention stuff [Except no Costume presentation], this convention has all of the usual, plus a couple of extra receptions (usually Art Show reception, author mini-presentation session, and a decent Con-Suite food area on the main convention floor)  The convention expects 165 program participants including artists, authors, and science speakers, the authors I'll be looking for include Charlaine Harris  and obviously lots of other people.  

I usually drive to Alewife Station (at end of Red Line Underground "T"  train) and take the T to about a block from the hotel. If my friend will be coming, she'll probably want to splurge for the valet parking, and then I can cart a few extra books for signing.

PS: Friday evening until 6PM is free to all. See web site for details.

Tis was a very good convention.
I went to more panel discussions than I normally do. I didn't do nearly as much volunteer time as is normal. And I'm still loosing sleep because I'm staying up late reading the new books.

Charlaine Harris was there & she participated in a lot of panels. After one, I rushed over & bought a couple of new (to me) books.

The art show had lots of nice art, but I managed to only purchase a small print [Which is now at the frame shop.] My Dealer room purchases were those new Charlaine Harris books, plus a Lackey & Gaimen book each.

I will go again next year.
