One Great Read Event: Women in Science Fiction & Geek Culture Presentation

  • Robots & Rogues: New & Used Books (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This presentation focuses on women in all aspects of sci-fi culture. Our presenter is Aurora Cruz, of Ladies Geeking Out.

Madeline L'Engle was a female author writing science fiction with a female protagonist in the 1960s - not an easy feat! We will examine the issues facing female authors and artists through the development of sci-fi into modern day; explore the role of female protagonists and characters in fiction, movies, comics, and other media; and discuss the experience of women in today's geek culture, from gaming communities to conventions, cosplaying to avid readers.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with several panelists.
