Preliminary Program Grid for Yosef Lindell

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Yosef Lindell 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.

Sunday 1:00 pm: SF/F as Literature of the Diaspora (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Jeanne Adams, Martin Berman-Gorvine, Yosef Lindell
Unless you're indigenous, Americans come from someplace else. We're Jews who don't live in the shtetl or in Israel, Chinese people who don't live in China, Irish-Americans whose ancestors left home during the potato famine, etc. What are the implications of this dual identity and how does it inform our writing?
Sunday 2:00 pm: First Sentence, First Paragraph, What Does It Take to Grab You? (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Scott H. Andrews (M), Sarah Avery, Yosef Lindell
Great first sentences, to work, have to be sneaky or elegant. But great first sentences are rare. So what qualities does a novel or story have to have to make you keep reading beyond that first sentence or first paragraph? How do you craft the perfect opening hook?
