Philcon!!

Published November 18, 2014 by christinenorris

If you’re going to be attending Philcon this weekend, I’ll be there. I usually float around the dealer’s room, but there will be many chances to see me on panels. Many, many chances…

Sat 1:00 PM in Plaza V (Five) (1 hour)
THE MOVIES WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE TURN INTO TV SHOWS (1928)

[Panelists: Allyn Gibson (mod), Andre Lieven, Bill Spangler,
Christine Norris]

Is it Avatar? Harry Potter? The Road? 28 Days Later? Men in Black?
Too many movies end with us wanting more. Panelist and fans will
discuss what movies they would love to see made into TV shows, which
ones would work and those that tney should of just ended. (cartoons
and internet spin-offs are fair game

Sat 3:00 PM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
THE MODERN LIBRARY (1947)

[Panelists: Suzanne Rosin (mod), Tony Finan, Scheherazade Jackson,
Christine Norris, Meredith Schwartz, Mary Spila]

In the age of internet, Google, smartphone, and tablet, do we still
need libraries?  And, if so, what role do they have to play?  And
how has the role of librarian changed over time, and how might it
continue to change going forward

THE CAPALDI REPORT: A NEW WHO (1816)

[Panelists: Victoria Janssen (mod), Gordon Linzner, Deborah Stanish,
Rebecca Robare, Christine Norris, Gail Z. Martin]

With the first season of Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor concluded
and fandom awaiting the Doctor Who Christmas special, what has
worked and what has not? Has this new “alien” Doctor worked out
well?  How has Moffat’s new season helped or hurt the arrival of the
new Time Lord?  Where do Capaldi and Doctor Who go from here

Sat 6:00 PM in Plaza V (Five) (1 hour)
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS… (1817)

[Panelists: Christine Norris (mod), Marilyn Brahen, Gil Cnaan, Debby

affect how raise your children?  Have they shared your interests
