If you weren’t present at the YALSA Genre Galaxy preconference on Friday, you missed a day of great networking, learning, sharing, and yes — swordfighting. ‘ Our speakers did a wonderful job of both educating and entertaining attendees, who enjoyed a full day focusing on genre fiction (and nonfiction!).

For a taste of what we experienced, here’s Elizabeth Bird’s video of author James Kennedy kicking off the day with a little commentary on his ability to best Neil Gaiman and win the Newbery!

One Thought on “Swordfight Breaks Out At YALSA Preconference

  1. Mr. Kennedy himself recorded the event far better than I ever could. Go to http://jameskennedy.com/2009/07/13/i-win-the-newbery/ to see him wrest Neil Gaiman’s Newbery from him in an untimely manner. And yes. There was swordfighting.
