"Fantastic Heroines" panel this Friday in DC

Popping in real quick to tell you about a panel I'll be on at the American Women Writers National Museum.

  • What: "Fantastic Heroines of SF and Fantasy," discussing the changing roles of female characters in science fiction and fantasy. 
  • Who: Science fiction/fantasy authors Brenda Clough and L. Jagi Lamplighter. Oh, and me. Moderated by Colleen Cahill of the Library of Congress.
  • When: Friday, May 11, 11:30am - 1:30pm
  • Where: American Women Writers National Museum, 1275 K St. NW, Suite 102 (ground floor), Washington, DC, 20005. Metro Center and McPherson Metro stops (This is a small startup shared space, with the storefront entrance on 13th St. NW.)
  • How much: Free!
  • What else: I'll have some books to sell and sign after the panel, and as always, I love to chat with readers about anything and anyone.

As you have probably noticed, I have a few opinions on how fictional heroines are perceived and judged. Looking forward to a fabulous discussion!
