Did you know that the official Harry Potter conference (Leaky Con: http://leakycon.com/2013.html) is going to be in Portland, OR in 2013?

Not a Potter fan, you may be interested to know that they will likely have a "Lit Track" of other authors. The 2013 authors have not been announced yet, but here is the list of authors who were at Leaky Con 2012 to give you an idea of the caliber of authors involved:

  *   Holly Black
  *   John Green
  *   Lev Grossman
  *   Maureen Johnson
  *   Stephanie Perkins
  *   Margaret Stohl
  *   Laini Taylor
  *   Robin Wasserman
  *   Jennifer Laughran
  *   Rebecca Sherman
  *   Kate Schafer Testerman

The Leaky Con website has completely transitioned to the 2013 conference, but here is a decent recap of the 2012 conference to give you a better idea what it may be all about: http://www.chicagonow.com/geek-girl-chicago/2012/08/leaky-con-2012-recap-harry-potter-and-the-windy-city/#image/1.

Needless to say, this could be a very significant literary event right here in our own back yard!
