This year in Portland, we are fortunate to have the popular Harry Potter-themed convention, Leaky Con, descend upon our fair city. Named after the infamous pub in J.K. Rowling's series, The Leaky Cauldron, the convention features actors, authors, fan fiction, music, and all things related to this century's most famous wizard. But that's not all! This year's Leaky Con has expanded beyond just Harry Potter, and now features teen fiction in general. There will be several authors of note, including Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians, and Robin Wasserman, author of The Cold Awakening trilogy.


We will be at the convention for the next four days, June 27th- 30th, selling our tribute to the famous houses: our Sorcerer Socks! Our logo lady has dressed for the occasion as well; we have created four very special house stickers which will be available to con attendees this weekend and then (IF there are leftovers!) to the general public after. (We will announce sticker availability next week!)


If you're in the Portland area this weekend for Leaky Con, please stop by booth 211 and say hello! If you're interested in attending Leaky Con, it will be in Orlando next year, and in a new location the year after. Check their web site for updates!!!
