Nov 12: Beyond Wakanda! Celebrating New African Speculative Fiction
November 12th Friday. 11am-2pm NYC
RADICAL BOOK TALK! in collaboration with Brittle Paper
A journey through sinking red quicksands -- a smart-talking Edinburgh teen who can talk to ghosts -- a porcelain bowl with healing powers -- woman in a coma who can go back and forth in time -- and an all-out post-apocalyptic Africa with robots-gone-human and mer creatures parading the streets.
Join us to celebrate new works of speculative fiction from Africa!
CHILDREN OF THE QUICKSANDS by Efua Traoré(Chicken House books)
SEASONS IN HIPPOLAND by Wanjiku Ngugi (Seagull Books)
COSMOGRAMMA by Courttia Newland (Akashic Books)
LIBRARY OF THE DEAD by Tendai Huchu (Tor Books)
THEORY OF FLIGHT by Siphiwe Gloria Ndlovu (Catalyst Press)
