Kathleen Goonan at Center for Fiction’s Big Read Event


 On October 3rd, I participated in the  kickoff event for the Center for Fiction’s Big Read Event in NYC.

It was a great day.  The flight into NYC was splendid, as the day was clear and bright; I had lovely light-sheened views of rivers, bays, and bridges as we landed.  After checking in to my hotel, I visited the office of my publisher, Tor/MacMillan in the iconic Flatiron Building on 5th Avenue .










My editor, David Hartwell, introduced me to many of the people who worked on THIS SHARED DREAM. 

 I signed books in his office while he worked.   

Around 5 PM we headed toward a great restaurant a few doors down from the Center for Fiction, where we met Jen Gunnels for dinner, after which we walked to the Center for Fiction for the Big Read Event. 



Anna North (America Pacifica), Charles Yu (How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe) and I were on a panel on which we discussed utoias and dystopias, moderated by Orbit editor DongWon Song (left).    An article about the panel, “Genre in the Mainstream, was posted on tor.com. 

Here we are waiting for the panel to begin:

You can see a slideshow of the panel at the Center For Fiction’s website, where they describe the panel:

This panel explored the horrific and idyllic worlds that science fiction writers create in their works. Writers Anna North, Charles Yu, and Kathleen Ann Goonan with moderator DongWon Song discussed the universes of science and slipstream fiction.
NY - Times Square - Planet Hollywood And then, to Planet Hollywood on Times Square for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Annual Industry Event, a party for writers, editors, agents, and publishers. 
A good day.
