SF in SF with Annalee Newitz and Charlie Jane Anders

Please join us for an evening of reading and conversation with authors Hannu Rajaniemi and Christopher Brown, in conversation with Bay Area writer, editor, and raconteur Terry Bisson.

Charlie Jane Anders is the author of The City in the Middle of the Night  and the Nebula Award-winning All the Birds in the Sky. She’s the organizer of the Writers With Drinks reading series, and she was a founding editor of io9, a website about science fiction, science and futurism. Her stories have appeared in Asimov’s Science Fiction, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Tor.com, Lightspeed, Tin House, ZYZZYVA, and several anthologies. Her novelette “Six Months, Three Days” won a Hugo award. She has also won the Emperor Norton Award, for “extraordinary invention and creativity unhindered by the constraints of paltry reason.”

Annalee Newitz writes science fiction and nonfiction. They are the author of the novels The Future of Another Timeline, and Autonomous, which won the Lambda Literary Award. As a science journalist, they are a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times, and have a monthly column in New Scientist. They have published in The Washington Post, Slate, Popular Science, Ars Technica, The New Yorker, and The Atlantic, among others. They are also the co-host of the Hugo Award-winning podcast Our Opinions Are Correct. Previously, they were the founder of io9, and served as the editor-in-chief of Gizmodo.

Doors open at 6:00 pm; event begins at 6:30 pm. As always, Borderlands Books will be on hand with copies of the authors’ works for sale.
