Samuel R. Delany's
Diamond Birthday Celebration!
• doors open 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 1st
It is no small honor for us that we can host a jubilee for one of speculative fiction's most important writers -- one with whom we have had a long, happy association, both personal and professional. Chip Delany was one of the very first readers at this reading series some 25+ years ago. He has been a correspondent to NYRSF -- the magazine whose name this series bears -- throughout its existence.
Samuel R. Delany's contributions to science fiction -- nay, to literature and culture -- are incalculable. He has been a role model to a great many people; a highly-esteemed critic and teacher; a writer whose fiction will be studied long after we're all forgotten; and simply a wonderful, loving human being.
On the occasion of Chip's 75th birthday, join us as we examine one of his great achievements through an essay/talk by Terence Taylor; chat with Chip; and hear him read a new story. It will be an evening to remember.
