Infinitus… ‘Tis getting closer

Kind readers,

here is how I plan to spend my time at Infinitus, less than two weeks from now… I may not attend all the lectures I listed below, though I shall be there for sure if the lecture is in bold characters:

~ 1:45 flying back home

I had thought that this would be my last convention for a while, but… I have decided to go to Aeternitas 2011, which will be held at a beautiful lakeside resort in New Hampshire from April 28 to May 1 next year. I shall be devoting the fall and winter to my third book of Snape essays, A Princely Calling: Severus Snape and Monastic Self-Surrender, so that it is ready in time for this event…

In the meantime, I am a bit nervous about speaking again soon. It has been a couple of years since I gave a lecture. I have no doubt everyone will be kind, but I am a snail… I am preparing myself to emerge from my shell. Although I am not shy, I am definitely introverted and the energy required by conventions -especially speaking- takes a lot out of me. By God’s grace, I shall be all right.

Your devoted
Logospilgrim, the quiet professor

  1. That looks like a wonderful schedule of events, Professor. I’m truly delighted that you are coming to my presentation on Saturday. Thank you for setting aside time for it. I am also looking forward to meeting you in person and the discussions we will have. We must get together for lunch or supper during the convention. 🙂
