Kate Heartfield—finalist for the Aurora, Nebula, and the Locus First Novel Award—hosts an evening with acclaimed authors Derek Kunsken and Tade Thompson. Join us for a conversation on what we can learn by imagining a future.
 
Derek Kunsken is the author of the Quantum Evolution Series— The Quantum Magician and The Quantum Garden which focuses on Belisarius,  a Homo Quantus, engineered with impossible insight. But his gift is also a curse—an uncontrollable, even suicidal drive to know, to understand. Genetically flawed, he leaves his people to find a different life, and ends up becoming the galaxy’s greatest con man and thief. 
 
Tade Thompson, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Nommo Award for African speculative fiction, is the author of the Wormwood Trilogy: Rosewater, The Rosewater Insurrection and The Rosewater Redemption. Set in Nigeria, the books focus on Rosewater, a community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien bio-dome, and Kaaro, a government agent with a criminal past and special abilities.
 
Books available for purchase at every event: Proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.
