Kosoko Jackson to Headline

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- It’s time to let your geek flag fly! Meet celebrated YA author Kosoko Jackson at the eighth annual “FanNation: The Geekstravaganza,” on Saturday, October 22, at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch. The event starts at 10:00am.

FanNation gathers fans of science fiction, gaming, comic books, animation, anime, fantasy, and everything in between. Get in on six big hours of games, panel discussions, anime trivia, crafts, cosplay, and – who knows? – maybe find your next obsession.

Share your interests, create geeky-themed crafts, embark on scavenger hunts, meet the challenge of an escape room, and play video and tabletop games. Show off your fandom in our cosplay contest. The top three contestants will win special prizes.

At 12:00 noon, Kosoko Jackson, a proponent of diversity in literature and the author of The Forest Demands Its Due and Yesterday Is History, will discourse on his newest YA novel, Survive The Dome. All three titles are available at the Ocean County Library. 

Can’t get enough? Check out our anchor.fm “Fandom Friday” podcasts about Lord of the Rings, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stranger Things, and Heartstopper, and follow our role-playing librarians in their tabletop play-through of Avatar: Legends of Wood and Wind.
