We’re currently building the session schedule (got an idea for a subject you want to present on? We want to hear from you!), but last year we had speakers on topics that ran the gamut of history and fandom, including lockpicking, Egyptomania in the 1920s, the sociology of the Miss Fisher stories, the evolution of undergarments, and era-appropriate food and cocktails, just to name a few. (Last year’s schedule is available on our website, if you want to know more.) Our board is also exploring the options for this year’s VIP guests - in 2017, we had Anthony Sharpe and Travis McMahon, our favorite red raggers Cec & Bert, and in 2018 we were joined by darling Jane herself, Ruby Rees!

The mission of the Adventuresses’ Club of the Americas is to promote and encourage fellowship among the fans of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Always wanted a place to have that in-depth geek-out over Phryne’s wardrobe or a discussion of when Jack’s divorce really would have been final? Miss Fisher Con is a warm and inclusive place to do that. We hope you’ll join us!
Happy 2018 con attendees
May 2019 treat you all gently, and may good things come your way!
