Fundraiser for the Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship
Saturday is Litquake Day in San Francisco, and SF in SF has a very special event for you....
Special guest readers for the event will be Jewelle Gomez and Claire Light. There will also be a discussion on Butler and Brandon, with Q and A moderated by Terry Bisson. Books will be for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books; and there's a special raffle at $1 a ticket!!! All proceeds to the scholarship!
SF in SF will be asking for $5 at the door, with all of the money going to the Octavia Butler Scholarship. Bar proceeds for the night will also go to the Scholarship. Tips, as usual, will go to Variety.
The Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship enables writers of color to attend one of the Clarion writing workshops, where Octavia got her start. It helps to cement Octavia's legacy by providing the same experience/opportunity that Octavia had to future generations of new writers of color.
Cash bar and doors open at 6:00 PM - first come, first seated. We will have the lounge area miked as well, so all who come are welcome to stay and listen.
Event begins at 7:00PM - podcasting by Rick Kleffel of The Agony Column & NPR
