If you’re in New York City this Thursday, you may be interested in a reading I’m participating in: Diaspora of the Fantastic: Black Women Writers of SF/F/H. Here’s the description:
Join science fiction, fantasy, and horror authors Linda D. Addison, K. Tempest Bradford, N. K. Jemisin, and Alaya Dawn Johnson for a reading and discussion on women of color in speculative fiction.
Far from being indifferent to the genre, people of color are creating and consuming SF literature and media more than ever. Come hear some of the best new and award-winning speculative voices of color writing today.
