ArmadilloCon 22 was a science fiction convention that took place in Austin, Texas in 2000. Mary Doria Russell, author of “Sparrow” and “Children of God” was the toastmaster. The convention also happened to fall on Mary Doria Russell’s birthday, so during the opening ceremony the organizers presented her with a cake.
