Fantasy fans (and most other types of nerds) rejoice, RavenCon is returning to Richmond, Virginia, April 13 through 15. Celebrating Science Fiction, art, gaming, and programing, this year's convention, located at the Koger Center Holiday Inn, will feature events and workshops to highlight the latest goings-on in these areas. Peruse the designated Anime Room and anticipate the RavenCon Masquerade on the evening of April 14 for which participants are encouraged to costume up.
This year, guests of honor will include Glen Cook, author of The Black Company series, and Matthew Stewart, famous fantasy artist. Bella Morte will be providing musical entertainment for the event.
Not just a weekend of guilt-free self-indulgence for fans, RavenCon 2012 is heavily involved with several charities. Proceeds from the Charity Auction will go to the American Cancer Society and the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Additionally, they will be hosting a book drive, and guests are encouraged to bring their unwanted books to benefit Books on Wheels.
