All of my favorites will be there: guests/panels on “Supernatural“, “True Blood”, “The Vampire Diaries“, “Being Human“, and of course, Harry Potter. I have the privilege again this year of attending on a media pass, representing Examiner.com (I am the Atlanta Sci-Fi Movies and Atlanta Sci-Fi TV Examiner), and I will also have a chance to display my love for Harry Potter by sitting on two panels this year: Harry Potter: From Page to Screen (Friday 8:30pm), and The Hero’s Journey of Neville Longbottom (Saturday 1pm). Both panels are part of the Young Adult Literature track; stop by and say hi!
Also, I have received an invite to one of the press conferences being held for Jim Beaver, who plays Bobby Singer on “Supernatural”. This will be my first press conference, and I’m very excited at the opportunity.
You can look below to see what panels I will be attending, and if you have any burning questions for any of the stars, please let me know and I’ll try to get your answers posted.

If you are a reader of the blog and will be at Dragon*Con, please let me know…I love meeting new people face-to-face. You can message me here or via Twitter.
Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. Every Labor Day weekend, about 40,000 people crowd the streets and take over the hotels of downtown Atlanta to meet friends, celebrities, cosplay and totally geek out. Ticket information can be found on the official website.
