“To many people, “sci-fi” still denotes a world of spaceships piloted by square-jawed white male captains. But while popular culture’s back was turned, the literature of the fantastic has gone way beyond Hollywood to spearhead a deeply daring exploration of race and gender, stretching the boundaries of what could be, and making it possible for us to imagine alternative possiblities through the lens of speculative fiction. Join Samuel R. Delany, Steve Berman, Carlos Hernandez, Andrea Hairston, Alaya Dawn Johnson, and moderator Ellen Kushner for this thought-provoking discussion. Click here to RSVP.”
