Lawrence good stuff: Super Nerd Night, Live Author Chat, Spectrum Art Convention

Oh, and THREE local SFnal activities coming up this week!

First up, on Wednesday, we have Super Nerd Night: Steampunk Hillbilly Edition. The major event starts at 9:00pm, but there's a Magic: The Gathering tourney that begins at 7:00pm. Tons of great stuff after that, including costuming, gaming, live music, and much more, plus it takes place in a bar, so you can get your boozin' on. Best of all, proceeds benefit AboutSF, the Center's educational-outreach program.

On Thursday, the Lawrence Public Library is hosting a live video chat with the authors of The Mongoliad; Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear, E.D. deBirmingham, Mark Teppo, Joseph Brassey, Erik Bear, and Cooper Moo! The event starts at 6:00pm, but of course you can just watch it from home on Ars Technica.

And then there's the big Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! convention at Bartle Hall this weekend.
