I was last in Philadelphia for Millenium PhilCon, the 2001 World Science Fiction Convention. Greg Bear was GoH. He wanted strong using SF in the classroom programming. I headed Developing the Young Reader and Educator’s Saturday. The staff included.
Developing the Young Reader was possible because local fen plus people from Baltimore, Buffalo, Denver, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Texas and other places worked. together.
