Mayday! Our original plans for May Day fell through, but Fate has delivered two brilliant sff writers to our midst.
Jo Walton is a science fiction and fantasy writer. She has published thirteen novels, with a fourteenth, Lent, due out from Tor next spring. Her novel Among Others won the Hugo and the Nebula in 2012. Her blog posts about older SF have been collected in a volume called What Makes This Book So Great, and she has just published a collection of short stories, poetry and a play, called Starlings. She comes from Wales but lives in Montreal. Her plan is to live to be ninety-nine and write a book every year.
The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and space, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list, the Web, and Facebook.
The Cafe has excellent food, a coffee bar, beer and wine. The Jenna freebie table will offer books and goodies, as will the raffle for any who donate.
When attending our events, use only common scents please. Preferably NO perfumes or colognes! We like the smell of people, and we have at least one staff member who is truly allergic and was bedridden for the better part of three weeks from an event. Thank you for understanding.
