Albacon 2019 is proud to announce that Bruce Coville will be our Guest of Honor. Coville is author of over one hundred popular books for younger readers, i ncluding My Teacher is an Alien, Into the Land of Unicorns, and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. He will be there to meet fans and talk about his work and writing in general.
Please excuse our appearance (and likely mass of broken links/pages) as our webmaster is hard at work creating our 2019 site.
We have a tentative date of September 13-15 in the fall of 2019 for Albacon and are communicating with our proposed guest of honor for a commitment. Our 20th con was a blast and we are so happy to feel the love and support from our loyal fans over the years, we really couldn’t do it without you all.
We are expecting to be in the same hotel as 2018, the Ramada Plaza (Ramada Albany) located at 3 Watervliet Avenue Ext., Albany, New York.
