PEN Live: Black Panther, Katniss Everdeen, and the Changing Faces of Sci-Fi and Fantasy
KGB Bar’s Red Room hosts cocktails and cosmic conversation, as PEN presents science fiction and fantasy authors Haris Durrani, Maria Dahvana Headley, and Deji Bryce Olukotun, who will read selections from their work.
A conversation on how to build authentically diverse worlds, explore race, gender, and sexuality through a SFF-specific lens, the political implications of the genre, and the historical role of women in science fiction and fantasy will follow the readings. The authors will also discuss what they are looking forward to as science fiction and fantasy continues to evolve, and will invite the audience to join the conversation with a Q&A session.
Space is limited, so be sure to purchase your tickets here! $10.
