Happy Hour: C. L. Polk & Waubgeshig Rice
Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor
1221 2 St SW
What is the future of futuristic and fanstasy fiction? There’s no better duo to speculate with than the Hugo-nominated C.L. Polk, who has the most refreshing website bio (“They dwell in an apartment the same age as they are with too many books, not enough cats, and a yarn stash that could last a decade. A city person at heart, They menace the streets on rideshare scooters and ride a green bicycle with a basket on the front”) and Waubgeshig Rice, who has a game-on Twitter bio (Writer • Husband of @sarah_g_rice and dad of 2 boys • BJJ Brown Belt • Leafs fan • Metalhead • Anishinaabe/Canadian from Wasauksing First Nation).
This hour-long conversation, hosted by CJSW’s The A.M. 's Peter Hemminger, includes an audience Q&A, music by Rage Against the Machine, a fully stocked Libations bar, and book signing.
