Program with Fairy Tale Highlights for ICFA 37 in March 2016

A reminder that ICFA 37, the Thirty-Seventh International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts will take place in just a few weeks March 16-20, 2016 in Orlando, FL. The theme for this year is "Wonder Tales." I will be attending the entire conference and will sit on one panel, #95 Wonder Tales in Conversation on Friday of the conference.

The full program for ICFA 37 for the conference has been posted and can be found at http://www.fantastic-arts.org/annual-conference/icfa-37/
