ECCC: Resist, Rebel, Rise Up: SF/F Writers and the Politics of Oppression

  • WSCC 611 705 Pike Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

From seemingly small acts of defiance to full scale rebellions, the characters of science fiction and fantasy have led us to victory against all types of villains. Are these acts of resistance simply for literary pleasure, or do they carry a greater weight? Join us as authors Jeff Wheeler (The Harbinger series), Ashley & Leslie Saunders (The Rule of One), Somaiya Daud (Mirage), and Meg Elison (The Book of Flora discuss how they use speculative fiction to shine a light on current events and social issues, and also provide a path toward hope for the future.

Somaiya will be unavailable to sign after this event. If you would like books signed, please come to the 5:15p signing on March 15, at the Writer’s Block, level 6, tables 3&4.
