Calling all fans in NYC! CMV will be attending the Brooklyn Book Festival next weekend. If you’d like to come out and see her (admission is free!), get the details below:
Brooklyn Book Festival
Sunday, September 18 (10am-6pm)
The location is downtown Brooklyn, and the festival will be held rain or shine. Also, seating at panels is on a first come, first served basis.
Cat will specifically be doing a Bookend Event with the Center for Fiction on Gender in Science Fiction and Fantasy:
This event brings together celebrated voices from science fiction and fantasy whose work explores gender constructs and/or notions of sexuality, to talk about the current state and representation of these themes in the field. Multi-award winner Catherynne M. Valente (The Labyrinth(2004), Deathless (2011), Radiance (2015)) joins Seth Dickinson (The Traitor Baru Cormorant, 2014), 2015 Nebula Award-winner Alyssa Wong, and Whiting Award-winner Alice Sola Kim.
This event will take place at 5:00 PM at the Brooklyn Borough Hall Court Room in downtown Brooklyn.
