Serling Fest 2022: A Stellar Line-Up Set to Appear in Binghamton August 12-14
That’s right, fifth-dimension fans. It hasn’t even been a full year since the 2021 “Serling Fest,” but we’re getting set to gather again — this time on the second weekend of August.
But a couple of things haven’t changed, I’m glad to say. As usual, we’ll meet in Rod’s hometown of Binghamton, New York. And just as before, a great line-up of presenters and programs are on the slate. Check it out:
So we’ll get:
- Anne Serling, Rod’s younger daughter and author of “As I Knew Him: My Dad, Rod Serling“
- Tony Albarella, editor of “As Timeless of Infinity,” a 10-volume set of Serling’s Twilight Zone scripts
- Marc Zicree, author of “The Twilight Zone Companion“
- Nick Parisi, president of the Rod Serling Memorial Foundation and author of “Rod Serling: His Life, Work, and Imagination“
- Mark Dawidziak, author of “Everything I Need to Know I Learned in the Twilight Zone”
- Mark Olshaker, a friend of Serling’s and author of numerous books, including the “Mindhunter” ones with John Douglas
- Courtland Hull, the artist who painted the Zone-themed panels at the Recreation Park carousel that inspired “Walking Distance”
- Jonathan Napolitano, director of “The Carousel”
Here’s what they’ve got lined up over the three-day period:
If you’re a “Walking Distance” fan (and honestly, how many Zone-iacs don’t love this seminal episode?), then this is the Fest for you. And as an added bonus, things kick off on Friday with this:
It would be a real treat to have you join me and other fans in celebrating the life and legacy of Rod Serling this year in Binghamton. I’ll be tweeting about it, of course, and you can count on me writing a wrap-up post when all is said and done, but there’s no substitute for being there. Hope you can make it!
