Bummer of the Day: Bouchercon 2020 cancelled
So some not so good news today: Bouchercon 2020 in Sacramento has been cancelled, another casualty of the COVID-19 virus. I was surprised by the timing because it wasn't taking place until mid-October. I was hoping that things would have started getting back to normal in plenty of time for the conference.
The official announcement from their site:
As with Left Coast Crime San Diego, I do feel bad for the organizers, who have been working on this event for years.
The next Bouchercon is August 26-29, 2021 in New Orleans. The Brother and I are looking forward to spending some quality time there. Hopefully the world will have returned to what passes for normal by then.
