The World's Largest Mystery Convention

The World's Largest Mystery fan convention, called Bouchercon, is happening this October 4-7 in Cleveland. It's an annual convention named for renowned mystery (and sci-fi) writer, Anthony Boucher and about 1500 mystery lovers are expected to attend.

I haven't been to Cleveland as an adult but I am looking forward to catching up with my mystery loving friends and going to the opening ceremony party at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The museum will be open to anyone who attends the opening ceremony.

A few friends and I have volunteered to help with the event (it's all volunteer) and I can tell you there are a lot of fun things planned -- including a social hour with Criminal Element, a craft room, basketball with S.J. Rozan and special appearances by Linda Fairstein, Karin Slaughter, Lee Child, Michael Connolly, Elizabeth George, Mary Higgins Clark, Val McDermid and Robin Cook.

Hank Phillippi Ryan will also be at Bouchercon. Don't forget to enter here to win a signed copy of THE OTHER WOMAN.

You can register and learn more about the convention here at the 2012 website, and here and on Twitter @Bouchercon2012. You can learn more about future Bouchercons and the organization itself here.
