What is a Kaffeeklatsch? It's a small roundtable session with an author, artist, editor, or fan where traditionally coffee and tea are served. Here is your opportunity to spend an hour or so with your favorite author in an intimate group discussion. The groups will be small, so sign up early at the Con. Check the on-site website, daily newszine and the Information Desks for the authors who have volunteered to host Kaffeeklatsches, and for the rules for signing up. The Kaffeeklatsches will be held in "Truffles" at the Hyatt Regency. This is a great way to really meet that author whose work you've always loved.

Sign up at Information.

The Kaffee Klatsches are scheduled on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 10:00 AM and 6:45 PM and between 11:30 AM and 12:45 PM on Monday. Each Kaffee Klatsch has room for 10 participants and 2 alternates. We will attempt to fit the alternates in even if averyone shows up, but can make no guarantees. Because there may be as many as six thousand fans in attendance, signing up in advance is definitely required.

To help make the Kaffee Klatsches available to the largest number of fans the sign up sheets will be made available on a daily basis, rather than all at once. The sign up sheets will be available at the Information Desk in front of the Regency Ballrooms (Hyatt West Tower Ballroom Level). Friday's sheets will be available starting at Noon on Thursday. Saturday's sheets will be available starting at 9:30 AM Friday. Both Sunday and Monday's sheets will be available starting at 9:30 AM on Saturday. To help make the sign up process fair to everyone, we want you to sign up for yourself only -- In other words you can't sign up for yourself and all your friends. You will need your badge number to sign up but then, you need your badge for pretty much everything at Chicon.

(Special note for the time-impaired -- If you want to go to two Kaffee Klatches that are scheduled at the same time, you have to pick one of them: You can't sign up for both!) We hate to have so many rules, but we want to give EVERYONE a chance!
