WATCH: N. K. Jemisin in Conversation with the Next Generation of the Octavia Project
Hosted by Greenlight Bookstore
As we continue to grapple with uncertainty in our world, how can writers and creators build community and make an imprint? Whose voices get heard and how can we use craft to shape a new blueprint for the future? Join MacArthur Fellow and author of The City We Became N. K. Jemisin for a night of discussion and community in support of the Octavia Project, which fosters spaces of imagination and exploration for NYC teens, using speculative fiction to envision new futures. Jemisin will be joined in conversation by the next generation of writers from the Octavia Project.
