Semi-Final Program Grid for Michael Dirda
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Michael Dirda may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Panelists: Matt Betts, Michael Dirda, Laura Anne Gilman, Alma Katsu, Dina Leacock, Bud Sparhawk, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
We did it before and we'll do it again! Authors discuss how they became a writer, and why you should(n't) Writers share their experiences and offer advice to those interested in becoming a professional writer. Pay it forward.
|Saturday 12:00 pm: Lightening Students' Backpacks: Text Books in the Digital Age (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Day Al-Mohamed, Dr. Alice Armstrong, Michael Dirda, Thomas Holtz (M), Heidi Ruby Miller
How are textbooks changing in the age of digital content? What is the effect of EBook sharing and lending libraries? What changes when teachers can easily construct their own 'texts'? Or can textbooks be replaced with more interactive media?
