Sirens Newsletter – Onsite Edition – Friday, October 12

Registration Opens
Check-in at Sirens opened at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday! New and returning attendees gathered in Skamania Lodge’s Conference Center Lobby to pick up their registration materials, have afternoon tea and chat, and to check out the Narrate Bookstore.

 

 

Meanwhile, down the hall in the Rainier room there were games, crafts sprinkled with glitter, and even an impromptu roundtable discussion:

 

 

Thursday Keynote: Nalo Hopkinson
At 7:00 p.m., Sirens kicked off with a dessert reception featuring ice cream sundaes and cookies, and attendees old and new were welcomed and invited to share their stories with each other.

 

 

Guest of Honor Nalo Hopkinson then shared stories of her own in her keynote address, in which she discussed how our histories are retold and handed down through generations. Attendees were encouraged to participate, learning some of the ring games and songs she has featured in her books, such as Brown Girl in the Ring. She also spoke about how that “living lore” changes as it is passed down.
