Live Reading of L. Ron Hubbard’s science-fiction story “A Can of Vacuum”

Live Fiction Reading

Following the Public Relations Seminar was a special dinner for all in attendance! There was also some impromptu sketching by judge and illustrator Robert Castillo.

There was also a live reading of one of L. Ron Hubbard’s science-fiction stories “A Can of Vacuum” with special pre-show entertainment by the Jive Aces, the UK’s Number 1 Jive and Swing Band!

The reading was spectacular as usual with the actors and sound effects taking you into the story.

After the reading, there was a special “dessert mingler” upstairs. Four of the stories had a dessert themed after them, with a table displaying a scene in the story, using the dessert as part of the display.

All attendance mingled and said their goodbyes as the week had come to an end and everyone would leave the next day.
