Readercon Board Resigns

In the wake of the Readercon Board of Directors’ decision to ban RenĂ© Walling for two years due to harassment charges in contravention of Readercon policy, five members of the Readercon board have resigned and the con com has extended the ban as a lifetime ban. Readercon will elect a new board and develop a new policy for dealing with harassment based on widespread input. In addition, Readercon has announced a refund of memberships for Readercon 24 (2013) for those who feel the convention is not right for them based on recent actions.
