The Saturday event (listed this week in the Sun-Times’ Mix column) was called “Sorcery & Spectacle: A Season of Transformation and Rebirth.” Related video conference events with celebrities including Harvey Guillen (“What We Do in the Shadows”) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor in “Game of Thrones”) will proceed.
