Every year, the Fairelands has a special Day where we celebrate the works of a great fantasy author.
In the past we have celebrated the works of Terry Pratchett, William Shakespeare and JRR Tolkien.
This year, for the first time, Fantasy Faire will be celebrating the works of a living writer – George RR Martin with a program of events – and a special party! Come join us at The Halls of Story!
9:30 – 10:30 AM SLT: LitFest: The World of Ice and Fire – Freyja Nemeth & Ran Garrigus
Linda Antonsson and Elio M. García are the owners of Westeros.org, the oldest “A Song of Ice and Fire” fansite. They are also the co-authors of the concordance book and app “The World of Ice and Fire” together with George R.R. Martin himself.
11 AM – 1 PM SLT: Game of Thrones Party with DJ Zander Greene
What better way to celebrate the imaginative works of George R.R. Martin than with a party!? DJ Zander Greene will bring lively music from Westeros and other realms, and you are welcome to come decked out as your favorite Game of Thrones character. The party takes place in the Halls of Story.
3PM – 4PM SLT: A Game of Thrones: A Question of Media
Book, Television, Movie? These forms are all different in how they depict a story and its world, and when a particular tale grabs the popular fancy – like A Game of Thrones – it’s a guarantee that it will be represented in a whole variety of formats. Join Saffia Widdershins in an animated discussion. How do these formats vary? What does each do best? Which do you think does the best service to Martin’s world of Fire and Ice?
7 – 8 PM SLT: LitFest: A Selected View – George R.R. Martin – Seanchai Library
Aoife Lorefield presents a different glimpse of the popular author, beyond the fire and ice, to other selected works, presented live in voice.
