We are less than TWO WEEKS from LeakyCon 2009, and things are getting even more exciting. We'll have another big announcement for you soon. In the meantime, here's the schedule of events, so those of you registered can start getting your schedules in order:

Thursday
Friday Morning
Friday Afternoon and Evening
Saturday Morning
Saturday Afternoon and Evening
Sunday

We'll be highlighting much of the programming in coming days. In the meantime, here are some reminders:

Registration is here.

Tickets to ALL of our keynotes are going fast (and keynotes do not clash with ANY other programming: there is no chance that when signing up for one you will miss anything else). Here, again, are the links to our other two terrific panels:

Editors and Authors: Cheryl Klein and John Green - click here to read about it, click here to register.

Nosh with the Nerdfighters - click here to read about it, click here to register.

Q&A with Michael Goldenberg - click here to read, click here to register.

We are also holding a drawing for a signed one-of-a-kind collection of all 10 American-Edition Harry Potter books, donated by Scholastic and J.K. Rowling. For pics and video of the set, click here.

REMINDER ABOUT OUR TWITTER CONTEST: We are extending the Twitter contests for our Keynote presentations. If you twitter the following phrases you or the registrant of your choice (so tell your friends to do it) may win a free ticket to the corresponding keynote. (And do not wait to see if you've won to buy a ticket: if you already have a ticket and you win, we will refund you; the winners will be announced the week before the conference). Copy and paste these into your twitter:

#1:
Michael Goldenberg, screenwriter on HP5, is keynoting @leakycon2009! Go here for details: http://tinyurl.com/d9ba8g - more @leaky!
(don't worry, the first phrase we asked you to use will enter you as well)

#3:

THREE enormous wizard rock shows with more than 15 bands performing
All in-conference programming

Lena’s workshop at the same time as Pottercast? Really? Ugh. So I have to choose between something that would normally be a can’t-possibly-miss event and a friend. Being a Hufflepuff I guess I’ll go with my loyalty to Lena, and I’m sure Sue will understand, but really… can’t you reschedule that? Pottercast would be something practically everyone will want to go to with the event being Leaky’s own, and there shouldn’t be much on at the same time imo.

@David Wood – Sorry we spent hours on the schedule…weeks really, and there are just some things that couldn’t be avoided. I know that’s a disappointment, but not having programming against our own programming would mean some people wouldn’t even get the chance to present at the conference. When weighing that, we decided we’d rather give people the opportunity versus not. Hope you understand.

Guess That Book

Perhaps it was Harry's imagination, after all he'd heard about Slytherin, but he thought they looked like an unpleasant lot.
