Sam Maggs appears in conversation with Shelley Youngblut, General Director of Wordfest. The event is followed by an audience Q&A and book signing. Fanfic, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes for everything from starting an online fan community to planning a convention visit to supporting fellow female geeks in the wild. Named “Awesome Geek Feminist of the Year” by Women Write About Comics, Sam has also been an Editor for geek girl culture site The Mary Sue, and has been published across the web and in other books about gaming and genre. She has been interviewed about women in geek culture by everyone from Vulture to The New York Times. Maggs is also an accomplished on-air personality, appearing as the host of the Cineplex pre-show in front of six million Canadians a month; a frequent co-host on Teletoon; and a regular guest on MTV and Space. She has also appeared as a regular pop culture commentator on CBC’s Q. Copies of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy will be available for sale in the venue lobby after Sam Maggs appearance.
