On Thursday, October 24, 2013,  science fiction writer Kiini Ibura Salaam will visit Georgia Tech’s Stephen C. Hall Building to give a reading, signing, and interview.

Lisa Yaszek, who organized the visit, shares more details about Salaam’s visit:

I’m delighted to announce that award-winning author Kiini Ibura Salaam will visit us next Thursday, October 24. She will do an author reading and book-signing at 11 am in 102 Hall, and then a WREK interview and public discussion from 1:30-3 in the same place. . . . Anyone interested in women’s literature, Afrofuturism, and/or fantastic fiction will enjoy Kiini’s work.

From what I have read of her work, I agree 100% with Lisa’s assessment. I am looking forward to meeting an accomplished writer whose work is the kind whose rich descriptions fill your nostrils as much as your mind’s eye and whose stories excite you as you fall down the rabbit hole without a handhold in sight.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
