Terminus Updates: Key Note Speaker Tickets Available to Public, 25th Wizard Wrock Band Announced and MoreConventions
There are a few announcements today regarding Terminus 2008, the Harry Potter conference set for August 7-11 of this year. Earlier we told you Scholastic’s Harry Potter continuity editor Cheryl Klein and fantasy author Tamora Pierce would be the keynote speakers at the event in Chicago, with tickets open to Terminus attendees. Today, tickets to both of these keynotes are now open to the public, and you may order via this link. Both events are sure to be popular, especially given this is the first time an editor of the Harry Potter books has given a presentation at a Harry Potter conference. Please note both the keynotes include the presentation and a full meal.
Also now available to the public are tickets to the The Trade Winds Quidditch Tournament, and a very anticipated event, Wrock Chicago, the day long Wizarding rock event. On a related note, Terminus also has now announced the winner of the special Twenty-Fifth Band Competition for Wrock Chicago, with that slot going to Tonks and the Aurors. As an extra bonus, the all day Wizarding rock event at the Hilton hotel in Chicago will now open at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 6, instead of noon in order to include the runners-up. New additions to the lineup include groups The House of Black,RiddleTM,Ministry of Magic, Nagini, and Swish and Flick.
