netmouse: Firefly, natch. (Big Damn Heroes)
The Baltimore Book Festival is September 26-28, 2014, in the Baltimore Inner Harbor.
    Fri & Sat: noon - 8pm
    Sun: noon - 6pm

I am actually on a panel! On Friday, September 26:
2-3 PM Writing About Social Justice in Science Fiction and Fantasy

Join our panel to talk about science fiction that revolves around issues of social justice here on Earth--and elsewhere. From Ursula Le Guin's tour de force novel The Dispossessed to the works of MacArthur Fellow Octavia Butler through a plethora of other writers, science fiction and fantasy authors have never shied away from stories that tackled issues of social justice. Talk with our panelists about their favorite examples and yours.

Panelists: Anne K. Gray, Alma Katsu, Sunny Moraine, Alex Shvartsman, Fran Wilde

I will probably be taking a bag of books I want to flash and talk about, a couple of which will be on sale at the festival. With luck, I will get an audio recording as well. I am also reading The Dispossessed, which I never have before, in case someone wants to talk about it. :)

I just read a great story by Sunny Moraine in Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History an anthology co-edited by Rose Fox and Daniel José Older (which I highly recommend), and I look forward to being on a panel together.

Also, if you are looking for sf to read related to social justice, you could do worse than to check out this list of
recommendations from adrienne maree brown.
