CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE and THEODORA GOSS on Women in the Horror/Sci Fi Genre

July 18, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sci-fi fans, take note!  Brookline Booksmith welcomes NYT bestselling author CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE and novelist THEODORA GOSS for a discussion of females in horror/sci-fi literature.  

In their latest works, Valente and Goss write from women’s perspectives.

VALENTE’s The Refrigerator Monologues explores the a series of linked stories from the points of view of the wives and girlfriends of superheroes, female heroes, and anyone who’s ever been “refrigerated”: so that a male superhero’s storyline will progress.

GOSS’s The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter draws characters from classic sci-fi and horror literature with a twist.  Based on some of literature’s horror and science fiction classics, this is the story of a remarkable group of women who come together to solve the mystery of a series of gruesome murders—and the bigger mystery of their own origins.

This event is not ticketed.
