ALA 2012 Update: Fandom Panel line-up!

I was privileged to moderate an excellent panel this last Sunday at ALA Annual 2012 called (Re)telling Stories: Fanart, authorship, and how stories are shared, reconstructed, and retold on fandom, fan cultures, reading, and authorship.

Attendees asked me to post the full line-up of panelists so everyone could keep track of who participated.  Everyone was so very gracious and articulate, I can understand wanting to find out more about them all.  I’ve linked their names to their major internet presence, if they have a dedicated site.

Our panelists were:

And I was the moderator.  This was a major highlight of ALA for me, and I’d like to publicly thank all of the participants and attendees for being a part of such an informative and engaging discussion.

If you attended the panel, I’d love to hear what you all thought as an audience member!  I wish we could have shared the entire panel with those who could not attend ALA, but I’m hoping to write up a report and I’m hopeful attendees might chime in on twitter or tumblr to say what they thought.
