Preliminary Draft Program Grid for David Keener
This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. David Keener 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: Paolo Bacigalupi, D. Douglas Fratz (M), Max Gladstone, David Keener, James Maxey
Climate change is the new nuclear winter. Post-apocalyptic novels used to be set in a post nuclear detonation landscape; now they're set in environmentally wrecked futures. Most of these books are dystopian and theoretically predictive. Why do authors write the way they write about climate change?
