Malaprops Bookstore Shared Worlds Event
July 30, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm
A wonderful group event with guest writers from Shared Worlds, the unique SF/F writing camp. Jeff VanderMeer, Ann VanderMeer, Asheville’s Nathan Ballingrud, Tobias Buckell, Julia Elliott, Terra McVoy, Thomas Olde Heuvelt and Leah Thomas. Short entertaining “read offs” followed by Q&A and signing.
From Malaprop’s site: “We’re excited to host an afternoon of readings from the instructors of Wofford College’s Shared Worlds program, a murderer’s row of sci-fi, fantasy and weird fiction. MC’d by Shared Worlds founder Jeremy L.C. Jones. The authors will each be reading from their personal favorite passages for an event that promises to be strange, fast-paced and even a little competitive. Now in its ninth year, Shared Worlds is an interdisciplinary program for middle and high school students that emphasizes problem solving, collaborative creation, and experiential learning through the exploration of speculative fiction genres.”
