The Infinitus website has posted full summaries for the formal programming panels scheduled to be presented the weekend of July 15 – 18. The topics vary in range: there are topics relating to education (“Harry Potter and Virginia Tech: Studying the Phenomenon in the College Classroom” and “Teaching Harry, Exploring Difference” are a couple of examples), morality (“The Seven Deadly Horcruxes: Voldemort as a Mortal Sinner” and “The Better Man: the Morality of Youth in the Harry Potter Series”), arts and crafts (“Build a Potter” and “Magical Stitchery: Learning the Basic of Cross Stitch”) and other great panels.
I will be a first-time presenter at Infinitus, with the panel “Potterholics Non-Anonymous”; the summary can be found here on the website and also below:
Kat Amitrano has been a member of the Atlanta Adult Harry Potter Fan Group for 3 and 1/2 years. Although not a founding member, she has hosted and co-hosted many parties. In her spare time, she and her co-presenter, Hanako M. Ricks, travel the thrift store/Goodwill mega circuit in the Metro Atlanta area in search of discarded Harry Potter memorabilia. Their finds have helped decorate many parties.
Hanako M. Ricks is a wife, mother of three, full-time student in pursuit of a Journalism degree, and sole blogger on her website confessions of a Grown-Up Fangirl. She became a member of Atlanta HP in 2007, after meeting members of the group at her very first Dragon*Con. She is also a contributor to the Sci-Fi Party Line website and occasional guest on the SFPL podcast.
