Convention Panels

I really enjoyed Readercon. Now Arisia and some of the others are calling for new panel topics. I have an idea for one: would you go to this?

School of the Supernatural

Harry Potter had Hogwarts; Ender Wiggins had Battle School. Fantasy and SF stories with adolescent characters need places to train them. What makes a school a compelling setting in speculative fiction? Which ones stand out? How has the new resurgence of YA spec-fic changed the concept of these "special" schools? How have they diverged from the standard of the European boarding school?

What would YOU like to hear about?

I think this is a great idea for a topic!

Can I go to that?

Thanks, Lua and HH! I've submitted the topic for Arisia (Jan 2011 in Boston). We'll see what happens!
