On Friday, April 5 from 1-4 p.m., the Laramie County Library is hosting its very first Library Con! This year’s theme is Anime, and to celebrate the inaugural event the library is hosting renowned young adult fantasy author, F.C. Yee. Yee will participate in a Q&A session where he will discuss his book, The Epic Crush of Genie Lo and tease his upcoming novel, The Rise of Kyoshi. Yee will sign copies of his novel which will be available to purchase during the event.
F.C. Yee’s appearance is just one of Library Con’s many Anime-inspired activities. There will be crafts, panels, cosplays, fandom meetups, workshops, and more! Attendees can craft with Washi Tape, build their own Pokémon terrarium, and participate in two panels, “The World of Worbla” and “Intro to Japanese: Anime Style.” The interactive “Quirk 101” workshop will give participants the opportunity to create their own special power and discuss how it could be used in battle. In addition to all of the Anime activities, the library will be hosting local vendors whose art, comics, and creations will be available for purchase.
Library Con Anime promises to provide three hours of fun for tweens and teens of all ages.
