Group event presenting A People’s Future of the United States: Speculative Fiction from 25 Extraordinary Writers

Group event presenting A People’s Future of the United States Thursday February 7th at 7pm

In these tumultuous times, in our deeply divided country, many people are angry, frightened, and hurting. Knowing that imagining a brighter tomorrow has always been an act of resistance, editors Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams invited an extraordinarily talented group of writers to share stories that explore new forms of freedom, love, and justice. They asked for narratives that would challenge oppressive American myths, release us from the chokehold of our history, and give us new futures to believe in.  They also asked that the stories be badass.  The result is this spectacular collection of twenty-five tales that blend the dark and the light, the dystopian and the utopian. These tales are vivid with struggle and hardship--whether it's the othered and the terrorized, or dragonriders and covert commandos--but these characters don't flee, they fight.  Thrilling, inspiring, and a sheer joy to read, A People's Future of the United States is a gift for anyone who believes in our power to dream a just world. (One World)

The following contributors will be joining us this evening to read their contributions to A People’s Future of the United States: Charles Yu, Ashok Banker, Lizz Huerta, and John Joseph Adams. Unfortunately Tananarive Due is no longer able to attend this event.
