SFF Collective - Pride Books

Tuesday November 12, 2019
18:00 - 19:00

The SFF (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Speculative Fiction) Collective is a group that meets regularly to discuss topics relating to SFF books and share book recommendations across the genre.

Our next meeting will be during Pride Month so we’re doing Pride Books! Some questions we might consider are: What are some books that have good LGBTQIA+ representation? How do Fantasy and Science Fiction compare in terms of representation? What does good and bad representation mean? Who are some queer SFF authors?

Authors might include Becky Chambers, Ursula Le Guin, Ann Leckie, Chuck Tingle, KJ Charles, JY Yang, Madeleine Miller, Oscar Wilde, Matthew Lewis and Elizabeth Bear.


Although this event is free, RSVP is essential.
