Fandom Fridays!

Wednesday, Sep 24, 2014 at 7:35pm

SASKATOON- Hey there Fans of all things Fandom! If you're a middle and/or teen reader with a thirst for following the things you love, this is for you! Whether a seasoned fandom veteran or a novice looking for a place to get their fandom feet wet, this is the place to discuss all things Fandom**!

**Fandom: (consisting of fan [fanatic] plus the suffix -dom, as in kingdom) is a term that refers to a microcosm of people who are fans of a fiction genre. Apparently Fandom can be traced back to the 1930's! Who knew? It can also be characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest. If you are an avid fan and follower of books, movies, television shows, comics, and/or anime, (etc.), chances are, you may already be a part of Fandom culture!

Hosted by our very own Fandom Guru, Tressa, you can expect an excellent evening and a chance to meet, hang out, play games, and participate in Fandom-related activities! We will be discussing a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, fanfiction, cosplay, fan subculture, fan-created meta, and all things fandom related!

So feel free to join us every Friday at 7:00pm. Groups are always welcome!

Check out our excellent new Tumblr page, mcnallyfandomfridays.tumblr.com

For more info, call the kids desk (306)-955-1477

There is a $5.00 drop in charge to help cover the cost of refreshments/goodies (Mmmmmm! nom nom nom)
