“an event of extreme importance” [SIGN]
What do two energetic and passionate Sherlock Holmes fans do when they're sparked by a new Sherlock Holmes manifestation? Why, they establish a major event!
That's exactly what Heather Holloway and Crystal Noll did, after discovering they each enjoyed Sherlock Holmes, albeit from two very different origins. Throw in the Canon, the BBC, Waffle House, and ground central for fan conventions, and you've got 221B Con.
As you'll hear, Heather and Crystal went about things all wrong. But they were successful beyond their wildest imagination, and now 221B Con is in its seventh year. Listen to how this fascinating and multifaceted event came together and what you can expect if you attend the next 221B Con in Atlanta from April 5-7, 2019.
