The Readercon board has announced that Readercon will not be held in 2022. Readercon 32 will instead take place July 13–16, 2023 at the Marriott Boston Quincy hotel in Quincy MA.
The announcement says
We just need some time to recharge and get our house in order.
The last two years have been a doozy for everyone. We all need some rest. And Readercon as an organization needs an opportunity to revamp back-end processes, update and streamline old systems, and recruit new volunteers to fill key positions. Just as you can’t fix your car’s brakes while you’re driving, we can’t make all those changes at the same time as putting on a convention. So after much behind-the-scenes discussion, we’re officially taking 2022 as a Renovation Year!
Readercon has been around since 1987; this isn’t the first time we’ve had to take the con in for a tune-up, and we doubt it’ll be the last. Every long-running convention needs occasional opportunities to renew and revamp so it’s in good shape to continue into the future. (We’d love another 30+ years, should we be so lucky.)
