Wednesday Night Sold Out at Norwescon Rate
The supply of Wednesday room nights at the convention rate of $129 has initially sold out, and will remain extremely limited until the closure of the room block on March 9, 2018. You can still reserve a room on Wednesday, March 28th, but you may be charged a higher rate (typically $169), unless new reservations within the room block become available due to cancellations.
There are still plenty of rooms available at the convention rate of $129 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Act soon so you don't miss out! Pro tip: additional rooms at the Norwescon rate may come available due to cancellations shortly before January 13th, the last day on which the one- night deposit is refundable.

Start a New Hobby! Join the Norwescon Book Club in October!
Come join the book lovers in our fannish community on October 29th as we dive into the epic fantasy Grace of Kings by this year's writer guest of honor, Ken Liu. This first book of Liu's Dandelion Dynasty series is a sprawling masterpiece filled with intrigue, intimate plots, and action. Liu's story follows two young men--a bandit and the son of a deposed duke--as they form an unlikely alliance to fight armies, airships, and shape-shifting gods.
Please join us on Sunday, October 29th at 6 p.m. at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. Look for a dragon and host Kathy Bond decked out in her Norwescon shirt.
