. : A Long Expected Party : .

Our guests have accepted and have submitted their panel ideas. This can be found on the Panels / Schedule page.

As most of you know, we lost a dear friend and ALEP family member the summer of 2015, Jef Murray.  He was a valued contributor to the event and allowed us to use his artwork on anything for ALEP.  Even though we will feel our loss for some time to come, we will also celebrate his life and all he shared with us.

September 27 - October 1

So many hopefuls, so little space.

The only thing about this process that is automatic is this Hobbit running like mad in that squirrel cage hidden behind this screen to keep it all moving.

.: 4LEP ~ the Good, the Bad & the Hungry :.

The beginning teasers:

- the Good:  Elf night (Thursday), just because there’s too many to refuse. Wizards will also share the magical night with a tribute to one certain blue wizard.

- the Bad:  Villain / Bad Guy night (Friday).. Here’s your chance to let out your dark side…. IF you so desire.

- the Hungry:  Hobbit party day/night (Saturday).. You can’t be in the shire and there not be a party.

- River boat cruise.. We’ve fixed last year’s problem. Sign up for the cruise and get a cruise ticket. Only ticket holders will be granted permission to come aboard. THEN if there’s still room, any last minute, ALEP attendees can fill any vacancies.

- Dr. Amy Sturgis has agreed to return and she has already submitted her panel topics.  She has also agreed to spearhead the writing workshop.  Check out the Panels page for more details.

- Dr. Michael Drout is also on board for another visit.

Panel ideas have already been offered so check out the Panels page.

- What’s ALEP without Marc Gunn? So, he’s back too and bringing Samantha and Jamie with him.
