With LeakyCon just a week and a half away (and registration to close soon - did you get your ticket?) we've got two special songs written in honor of the occasion:

 First, second, a Harry Potter song by Hank Green, released in honor of the occasion, "Dead Boy's Girlfriend."

Second, by Swish and Flick and House of Black, is a" LeakyCon Theme Song," which you can preview on either of their sites. You can also purchase it (all proceeds to the HPA and Book Aid) on those pages.

Here's all the information you need to know if you are going to join the biggest and best Harry Potter party this year, in Boston on May 21!

Registration is here.

Schedule of Events:

Friday Morning
Friday Afternoon and Evening
Saturday Morning
Saturday Afternoon and Evening


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.

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.

Don't forget, the main LeakyCon registration includes:

Welcome Feast
Leaving Feast
The Rocking Charity Ball
THREE enormous wizard rock shows with more than 15 bands performing
All in-conference programming
Vendor Room
Podcasts, including live PotterCast, Spellcast, Spinnerscast and more
Film screenings
And a lot more - an unbelievable value that is unparalleled anywhere. LeakyCon is a charity conference, with all proceeds benefiting Book Aid International and the HP Alliance.

We will see you there!
