Join us on Sunday, January 29th for SF in SF’s first event of the new year, when authors Annalee Newitz and Naseem Jamnia return to the American Bookbinders Museum for an evening of reading and conversation with Bay Area writer, editor, and raconteur Terry Bisson.
ANNALEE NEWITZ writes science fiction and nonfiction. They are the author of Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age and Scatter, Adapt and Remember: How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction, which was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize in science. They’re also the author of the novels The Terraformers, The Future of Another Timeline, and Autonomous, which won the Lambda Literary Award. As a journalist, they are a writer for the New York Times and elsewhere, 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 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.
NASEEM JAMNIA was born to Iranian immigrants and raised in the North Side of Chicago, which they still call home even though they no longer live there. Their writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, The Rumpus, The Writer’s Chronicle, and other venues. They were the 2018 Bitch Media Fellow in Technology, a 2019 Lambda Literary Fellow in Young Adult Fiction, and a 2022 Otherwise Fellow, and was named the inaugural Samuel R. Delany Fellow. Their debut novella, The Bruising of Qilwa, was released by Tachyon Publications in 2022.
