Next week marks the annual Geek Week at Housing Works Bookstore and Cafe in New York, and in addition to deals on their SFF, vinyl, and comics inventory, you’ll also find a sweet lineup of events to attend!
It all kicks off Monday, February 20th at 7pm with a panel on speculative literature and political unrest titled Beyond Orwell. Five authors discuss the role of speculative literature in times of political unrest, past, present, and future. The panel will feature Daniel José Older (Shadowshaper), N. K. Jemisin (The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate), Justina Ireland (Promise of Shadows), Helen Phillips (The Beautiful Bureaucrat, Some Possible Solutions), and Berit Anderson (Scout.ai). Drinks will be available for purchase and all proceeds go toward Housing Works’ charitable mission.
You can RSVP at their Facebook event!
