Program Book

The Westercon 70 program book has been published as a trade paperback book, in the standard 8½” x 5½” format with full color covers and a black and white interior. It will include all the traditional components, with a few extra for good luck. The back cover is a map of the venue. We believe that this format will be easy to carry, easy to navigate and easy to read.

Attending members will receive a physical copy of the program book at the event. Supporting members will be mailed a physical copy after the event. However, here’s a copy for you to peruse beforehand. Right click and download this link.
