Science Fiction Writer Nisi Shawl
Science Fiction Writer Nisi Shawl has been known for her Short Stories and her creative writing handbook, Writing the Other, written with Cynthia Ward. Now she has brought us Everfair, a steampunk alternate history of what might have happened in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century if the native Africans of the Congo had gotten hold of steam power just a little bit earlier. Mix in British Fabian Socialists and African American christian missionaries working together and you get a delightful story. Come join us at the Salem Book Bin bookstore on Friday January 1st at 7pm to hear about thas alternative history. This event is free and open to all.
