Reading and Signing with Ann Leckie for

ANCILLARY SWORD

Wed, Oct 8, 7pm at UCPL

 

 

The hotly anticipated sequel to the science fiction debut that everybody's talking about. Ancillary Justice was widely compared to Iain M. Banks and Ursula Le Guin, was the winner of a Hugo Award, Nebula Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the British Science Fiction Association Award, a James Tiptree Honour and the Kitschies' Golden Tentacle.

 

 

JUSTICE FOR ALL:



Breq - the soldier who used to be a spaceship - is serving the emperor she swore to destroy. She's been given her own warship, her own crew and ordered to the only place in the galaxy she would have agreed to go: to Athoek Station, to protect the family of the lieutenant she murdered in cold blood.



Athoek was annexed by the Empire some six hundred years ago, and by now everyone is fully 'civilised'. Or should be - but everything is not as tranquil as it appears. Old divisions are still troublesome, Athoek Station's AI is restless and it looks like the alien Presger might have taken an interest in what's going on. With no guarantees that their interest is benevolent.



The author of many published science fiction short stories, Ann Leckie lives in St Louis, Missouri, with her husband, children and cats. She's currently the Secretary for the SFWA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America). You can find her website at www.annleckie.com or chat to her on twitter at @Ann_Leckie.

Lit in the Lou! Oct 10-Oct 12

10/10/2014

The Saint Louis Literary Consortium (SLLC) and the St. Louis Independent Bookstore Alliance is inviting area book lovers to come and enjoy LIT IN THE LOU—a book festival celebrating “all things literary” in St. Louis. 
 

With author readings, book signings, writing workshops, vendor displays, family activities, music, and food, LIT IN THE LOU promises a fun time for readers and writers of all ages.
 
 
AND, there's an Indiegogo campaign here to help offset the financial gap that's almost inevitable when putting on a first-year event as huge as this (over 40 authors!) 
 
 


Festivities will open with a kickoff party Friday evening at the city hall in University City. In addition to good food, music, and the opportunity to mingle with authors, a prominent St. Louis area writer will be honored with the Tradition of Literary Excellence Award (funded by the U. City Arts & Letters Commission), and the two student winners of the Library of Congress Letters About Literature contest will be recognized. Kickoff party tickets ($25/person) are available at Brown Paper Tickets and through the SLLC website. 

Outdoor festival activities are slated for Saturday in U. City’s Ackert Park and along Ackert Walkway, with more readings and book signings to be held in Loop shops and restaurants and at the University City Public Library.
The event will conclude with additional workshops and panel discussions on Sunday. 
 
 
 
Here's the link one more time for the Indiegogo campaign here .  Tents need to be paid for!  Please give.  And thanks.
