Octavia Butler Tribute -NYC

Laurie says:

The New York Public Library is hosting a tribute to Octavia Butler on June 5th. There’s a great picture of her on the site.

“Writers and friends of Octavia E. Butler, who died in February, 2006, will gather to pay tribute to this internationally known science fiction writer whose evocative, often troubling, novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human.”

The list of speakers is fabulous. Check it out.
