FYI to all NYC-area peeps:
I will be appearing as part of the Brooklyn Book Festival this weekend! I’m super-excited about this, as I’ve been attending the BKBF as a book lover for the last few years. Haven’t been? You should come! The BKBF is a day-long carnival of speakers, booths, entertainment events, and fun for book lovers of all stripes. My particular contribution to the fun will be this:
Unheard of Magnitude of Fiction. Bill Evans, co-author of Category 7, N.K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, Karen Lord Redemption in Indigo, read from their gripping books, which challenge us to imagine havoc and consequences wreaked by nature and gods. BROOKLYN HISTORICAL SOCIETY 2:00 PM
Haven’t yet decided what segment I’ll read. The opening chapter, probably.
And I’ll get to meet Karen Lord! I’ve been hearing great things about her novel Redemption in Indigo. Haven’t had time to read it yet, but it’s on my TBR pile.
Anyway, if you’re BK-ward, come on by!
