Fayetteville celebrates anime this fall

August 27, 2017 by  

The 11th annual Librari-Con is taking place next month in Fayetteville.

The convention is dedicated to anime, comic books and science fiction in popular culture.

The event will be hosted by Jennifer Hatcher and is aimed at people from the ages of 12 and up.

There are set to be anime screenings, panel discussions and trivia contests. A gaming lounge will feature video and arcade games, there will be storytelling and guests can take part in a Japanese tea ceremony. There will also be workshops on topics such as fighting with a lightsaber, improvisation and Japanese culture.

There will be a writer’s lounge, an Artists Alley and Chibi Corner. Guests can also learn about origami or take part in coloring activities. In addition, guests can come dressed up in their favorite costumes and take part in the cosplay runway. There will also be a Draw Libby contest.

Guests will also be able to purchase drinks and food from visiting food trucks.

This free convention will no doubt attract a lot of interest in the Fayetteville area. Organizers may invest in poster printing services to help advertise in the community.

Librari-Con will be held at the Cumberland County Public Library and Information Center on September 2 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. For more information about planned activities, contact the library at 910-483-7727.
