Heroines of SF/F panel and booksigning - Baltimore SF Society

Popping in real quick to tell you about a panel I'll be on at the Baltimore Science Fiction Society this Saturday night:
  • 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, Morgan Keyes, and L. Jagi Lamplighter. Oh, and me. Moderated by Colleen Cahill of the Library of Congress.
  • When: Saturday, October 27, 8pm. 
  • Where: Baltimore Science Fiction Society, 3310 E. Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD.
  • How much: Free!
  • What else: My favorite indie bookseller, Constellation Books in Reisterstown, will have our books for sale after the panel. I'm happy to sign them, 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 fascinating discussion before Hurricane Sandy wipes us all off the map!



Yay! Constellation! I don't know if you remember me, but I met you at Constellation in May, for the release of SHINE. I wish I could come to this, but I'm boarding up for Sandy... stay safe!!!
