The Shape of Things to Come: Science Fiction at Georgia Tech – Full Schedule

Received the final schedule for this Thursday’s (11/17) science fiction symposium, The Shape of Things to Come: Science Fiction at Georgia Tech, hosted by The School of Literature, Communication and Culture (Skiles Building, Room 002). My reading with Joe McDermott and Chesya Burke is schedule for 4:30 pm-6:00 pm. I’ll be reading “The Archer of the Sun and the Lady of the Moon,” one of the stories from Returning My Sister’s Face.  

The symposium is free to the public and promises to have heaps of interesting subject matter and discussion topics. Hope to see folks there!
