On February 14 there will be a Festival of living literature in Tampere (in Sampola).
The Tampere fandom organizations (Spektre, smial Morel, FSFWA Tampere, Tampere Science Fiction Society, and the Risingshadow and Kontu net communities) will take part in the event with a joint table to introduce themselves and tell people about their activities. There will also be a couple of panel discussions with sfnal topics, and among the participants are Risto Isomäki, Johanna Sinisalo, Maarit Verronen, and Tiina Raevaara. There will also be a fandom party in the evening at Telakka.
The event is free, so go take a look if you’re in Tampere that day! If you want to have more information or help out with the table, contact Liisa Rantalaiho.
