Write Out of This World!

Little Free Library
The Norwescon 42 Little Free Library was a great success and will be back for 2020! We are looking for donations of books, magazines, comics, and media. We distributed well over a thousand items last year and are anticipating even more demand next year! As the new year approaches, if "organizing my books" is on your resolution list, please think of us! Bring your books to con or contact us for larger pick up in the general Seattle area. Until then, happy reading!
GOH Spotlight: Jacqueline Carey
New York Times bestseller Jacqueline Carey is the author of the critically acclaimed and award-winning Kushiel's Legacy series of historical fantasy novels, The Sundering tragedy duology, postmodern fables "Santa Olivia" and "Saints Astray", the Agent of Hel contemporary paranormal trilogy, Shakespearean adaptation Miranda and Caliban, and the epic fantasy standalone, Starless. Jacqueline enjoys doing research on a wide variety of arcane topics, and an affinity for travel has taken her from Iceland to China to date. She currently lives in west Michigan. We are excited to host her at Norwescon 43!
