5:00 pm — 6:00 pm The Relationship Between Reader and Writer (007B)

2:00 pm — 3:00 pm Three Movies? Reflections on and Prospects for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit (006D)
Does Peter Jackson’s approach work? What’s been successful (and what failed) in the first film, and what are you looking forward to (and what do you fear) in the next two film?
Plus I’ll be at the parties, and at the bar, and generally gadding about. It’s what I do at WorldCon.
Hope to see you in San Antonio!
