Local Announcement: Samuel R. Delany

For those of you in the Twin Cities area:

Science fiction writer Samuel R. Delany will be speaking at the Walker Art Center on Saturday, November 15 from 2:00 p.m. to4:00 p.m.. The lecture is FREE and open to the public.

From the Walker website:

Spend an afternoon in another world with author Samuel R. Delany, who visits the Walker in conjunction with the exhibition Tetsumi Kudo: Garden of Metamorphosis. Just as Kudo proposed a “new ecology” of humanity and technology, so has Delany’s groundbreaking science fiction—including award-winning titles such as Babel-17, Dhalgren, and The Einstein Intersection—offered captivating glimpses of hypothetical and shifting realities. In addition to science fiction and fantasy, Delany’s highly acclaimed works include autobiography, literary criticism, and eroticism. His latest novel, Dark Reflections (Running Press), presents a devastating “portrait of the artist” for the 21st century. Copresented by Rain Taxi Review of Books.

In other news, I guess we're all extremely busy or there would be more posting goodness happening here. Maybe we're all heads down today getting ready for group tonight...?
