This Sunday (9/18) is the Brooklyn Book Festival, and there is an exciting & super-relevant event happening at 5pm that day: “Not So Generic: Diversity in Science Fiction” (presented by the Center for Fiction). The event is local, free, & no tickets are required. Visit the link above for full details.

This is a totally optional thing, but I encourage you to attend this talk if you can and to share what you’ve learned with the class. If you attend & blog in response by start of class on Tu 9/20, you will get extra credit (yay!). This extra credit will replace a missing blog if you missed some blogs, or it will count as extra credit if already you did all of your blogs (bonus points). Please note that there are only two grades for this extra credit blog: 100 and 0. If you attend the event and blog your responses/reflections thoughtfully and comprehensively, you will receive 100% (otherwise,  you will receive no credit). Don’t forget to take notes at the event, so you can include concrete details in your blog.

Please categorize your blog as “Diversity in Science Fiction (Brooklyn Book Festival)”.
