About ANZFA: N.K. Jemisin: Out of This World live from New York
The New York Times describes N.K. Jemisin as “the most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation.”. Through a virtual appearance, we bring the acclaimed writer live to Wellington with the magic of the internet to discuss her life and work as a master of the sci-fi and speculative genre. Elizabeth Knox talks with Jemisin about the ways in which sci-fi and fantasy can illuminate some of the biggest themes of humanity: inequality, oppression and conflicts of culture. They also discuss Jemisin’s latest book The City We Became, the astonishing beginning to The Great Cities series. In this novel, New York is at the heart of the writer’s rich and transformative world-building and asks the beguiling question: what if cities had a soul?
