As part of the research I'm doing for the fandom presentation Liz B. and I are giving at the YALSA YA Lit Symposium, I'm collecting a list of cool fandom activities librarians can use with their patrons. I have to say, however, that all speeches, fanfic writing and costuming contests pale in comparison to the Cruise to Mars. Somehow, I don't think BCCLS would be willing to pay the $800 I'd need to go on the cruise. But how cool does it sound? Speed friending! A scavenger hunt! Celebrity stories!
Now, a VM-themed murder mystery evening, that's something libraries could do.
