Potlatch 18

Potlatch is a small, book- and reader-oriented science fiction convention. About 150 people sit around talking about books for a few days, in other words. It has alternated between Seattle and the Bay Area since 1992, with occasional forays to Oregon.

In 2009, Potlatch will be in Silicon Valley for the first time, at the Domain Hotel in Sunnyvale, from February 27 to March 1. In keeping with previous Bay Area Potlatches, there's a book of honor - no, wait, there are two books of honor this year! They are:
  • Always Coming Home, by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • Growing Up Weightless, by John M. Ford
I've had a great time at every Potlatch I've attended; they are friendly and convivial gatherings. To sign up or get more information, visit the web site. Registration information is here; hotel information is here.
