Tonight as part of Geek Fest, I’ll be doing a virtual chat through the Portage District Library, talking about the power and importance of humor in SF/F.
This will be similar to a panel I did at ICON over the weekend, but with 90 minutes, I’ll be able to get a bit broader and deeper. My plan is to talk about things that should be relevant to writer, but interesting to non-writers as well.
Here are the details from the library:
Date Time: Oct 21, 2021 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
