Åcon 5 – a Twitter Report

A collaborative report from the convention (via Twitter) now available on Storify.



The Squee discussion enthused about various things the panelists and audience liked and wanted to tell the others about. Here are today’s squeeworthy things:

Programme Book Published

The programme book will be available at the convention to members. But if you have an e-reader, you can download the electronic version, and it’s already available.

Cat Valente in Finnish

Gummerus has bought the Finnish rights to The Girl Who Circumnavigated
Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
 and its sequel,  The Girl who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There.  The first novel is scheduled for publication in February 2013.

Ferry Details

Details about the ferry trip from Turku (departure times, lunch schedule, etc.) have been added to the travel info page.

Tweeting About Åcon

When tweeting about Åcon, please use the hashtag #åcon5. That way, it’s easier for other people to find your tweets.

If you don’t have the letter ‘Å’ available on your keyboard, using #aacon5 seems to work for Twitter searches as well.

Beer & Chocolate

In addition to the regular convention programming, Åcon 5 will feature two excursions: a chocolate tasting and a brewery visit with beer tasting. There’s a limited amount of seats available (especially for the chocolate café trip); if you’d like to participate, please sign up by Saturday, May 12!
