One Year from Today!

I'm happy to announce that the dates for the 2012 Winkie Con have been confirmed. It begins one year from today! We will gather at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California, from  July 27th to 29th, 2012.

Among other things, we will be celebrating the centennial of L. Frank Baum's Sky Island - the book he considered his very best work. It's going to be a colorful convention I guarantee you! And the opening day of the convention also happens to be Ruth Plumly Thompson's 121st birthday. Today is her 120th!

It's too early to tip our hand and tell too much about next year's programming, but mark your calendars, start saving your pennies, and begin thinking about a costume. You have exactly a year to get ready!

I hope we have a few nods to PURPLE PRINCE's 80th anniversary. Otherwise, I'll have a bit to explain about MY costume.
