Opening Ceremonies

“Even though the future seems far away, it is actually beginning right now.” – Mattie Stepanek

Thursday, October 31st @ 6pm

Prior to our Halloween Whodunit Party (Best Little Murder House in Texas), Toastmaster Harry Hunsicker welcomes attendees as we announce three special awards — Barry Award, MacCavity Awards, and David Thompson Award — and honor the past featuring a video celebrating 50 years of Bouchercon.

Following the Opening Ceremonies, Harper Collins will have their traditional author signing event. Free books will be signed by Harper Collins authors. All Bouchercon attendees are welcome. A chili station will be setup for your enjoyment.
