The snows are melted, the snows are gone -- maybe. It's just the right season to grab your binoculars and look for dragons, mutants, and other fabulous creatures. And this is the right evening to come and meet their creators!



Chris ClaremontChris Claremont writes both comics and prose. His initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics The Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. The story arc “Dark Phoenix,” with its radical treatment of the story’s central character, paved the way for the reinterpretation of superhero mythos throughout the comics industry. His work is lauded for its anti-prejudice themes, and groundbreaking inclusion of minorities as heroes. His stories are the source material for Marvel’s string of X-Men movie and TV projects, including Legion, and next year’s major releases Dark Phoenix and the New Mutants. His has published nine novels, with more on the way. Chris’s papers are archived in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Columbia University (New York City) and are available for research.


Chandler Klang SmithChandler Klang Smith is a graduate of the MFA program at Columbia University. Her new novel The Sky Is Yours was listed by Entertainment Weekly as a "Best New Book." Tor.com and Lit Hub compared it favorably with Infinite Jest, The Wall Street Journal called it "mesmeric... a great and disturbing debut," and NPR described it as "a wickedly satirical synthesis that underlines just how fractured our own realities can be during periods of fear, unrest, inequality and instability." Smith teaches and tutors in New York City
