It's nearly summer in the northern hemisphere and that means convention season is well underway. Dragonmount would like to highlight some conventions and other fan events that will feature the Wheel of Time series. Of special note to European and Canadian fans, Sanderson plans to attend conventions in France, Norway, England and Toronto this summer. Keep in mind that all these events are subject to change. Items may be deleted or added to his itinerary. We'll do our best to keep you updated on changes, but you'll want to double check with the event organizers before making travel plans.
From May 26-29, Sanderson will be attending Les Imaginales in Épinal, France. You can view his schedule for the event on their website. Sanderson does not have an official signing scheduled, but will be happy to sign any book he wrote in between panels.
