This summer I’m in the Carolinas, helping run the Shared Worlds teen SF/F writing camp and also doing a few Borne bookstore events. This should be a lot of fun–and I hope to see you at some of these events! You can also catch me on North Carolina public radio July 18th.
Borne has gotten rave reviews from The Guardian, NYT Book Review, LA Times, Washington Post, and more. It also recently appeared on LitHub’s list of the best-reviewed books of the year so far.
July 19, Wed, 6pm – Spartanburg, SC
Hub City Bookshop – The wonderful N.K. Jemisin is Shared Worlds’s first-week guest writer and will be headlining this special event. I’ll open and read from Borne and then lead an in-conversation with Jemisin followed by Q&A from the audience.
July 20, Thurs, 6pm – Greenville, SC
M. Judson Booksellers – Borne reading with the marvelous Sofia Samatar reading from her new short story collection, followed by Ann VanderMeer leading an in-conversation between me and Sofia.
July 22, Sat, 5pm – Chapel Hill, NC
Flyleaf Books – Borne reading, in-conversation with Ann VanderMeer, and Q&A. Come out for my first event at Flyleaf–I’m very much looking forward to it!
July 25, 6pm – Spartanburg, SC
Hub City Bookshop – I’ll be the MC for a stellar all-star Shared Worlds cast of guest writers: Terra McVoy, Gwenda Bond, Sofia Samatar, Tobias Buckell, Kathe Koja, and Ekaterina Sedia. Short readings and then I’ll ask them questions about writing and their fiction.
