On the one hand, ReaderCon is billed as a “science fiction convention,” but not with your typical approach. So, skip the art shows, costumes, and gaming, and prepare for a con focused on the written word in all its glory.
What does that mean for you? Special guests from the sci-fi and literary communities that you love. Tap into their imaginative minds, talk shop, and explore topics with them.
In fact, during this con, there are 2 tracks for panel discussions, each packed with subjects you’ll enjoy. There’s also author readings, discussion groups, and signings. However, you don’t want to miss the genre awards either.
Now, this con is a smaller con, but that makes it all the more intimate and exciting. Plus, with a bookstore, after-parties, and much more, you’ll be celebrating the parts of the geek community that you can’t get enough of… and all with your friends!
Thursday: 8pm to 10pm
Friday: 11am to 10pm
Saturday 10am to 4pm
Sunday 10am to 3pm

How should you get to ReaderCon and where should you stay?
The Boston Marriott Quincy is at the Rt 93/Rt 3 split south of Boston. The hotel is at the top of a hill with wonderful views of Quincy Center. There are several parking areas, including one very convenient to the banquet entrance of the hotel.
For those of you with older GPS systems, set your address for 400 Crown Colony Drive. Look for a sign on the left pointing to the Marriott. Follow that road up and around the hill until it circles the hotel. The first parking area you encounter leads to a mulit-story garage, and is closest to the convention space. Continue around and you will reach the lobby entrance and the large above-ground parking lot. The Marriott offers all hotel guests shuttle service to locations within a one-mile radius. However, if you have your own car you will find even more dining choices, most of which have plenty of parking.
We recommend Hotels.com for finding great deals on hotel rooms.
