I’ll be at C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, which will be held December 10 to 12 at McCormick Place on the lakefront here in Chicago. It’s one of the nerd highlights of the year, and it may draw 50,000 people — wear your mask and get your vaccine or covid test to attend.
I’ll be on two panels:
Beyond the Stars: Worldbuilding in Science Fiction, Friday, December 10, 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. Location: S405B. The greatest science fiction is all about grappling with the question: what else is there? Whether it’s exploring far-off galaxies or looking ahead to our tomorrow, these authors have seen what is and looked beyond to what could be. Join them as they discuss how they created whole new worlds that still feel real and relatable, and what issues they hoped to confront while leaving the present behind. Guests: Timothy Zahn, Delilah S. Dawson, J.S. Dewes, Sue Burke.
I’ll be signing books from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Anderson’s Bookshop, Booth 1049
Women in Sci-Fi, Saturday, December 11, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Location: S405B. Join two friends and sci fi authors as they discuss their new books, their writing tips, their favorites of the genre, and more. J.S. Dewes, Sue Burke.
I’ll be signing books from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Anderson’s Bookshop, Booth 1049.
Finally, I’ll be volunteering both afternoons at the Science Fiction Outreach Project, Booth 1865. We will be giving away information about science fiction — and free books for all ages! Come anytime and choose a free book to take home.
