Sci-Fi/Fantasy Author Event: Elizabeth Bear and Cadwell Turnbull

MA authors Elizabeth Bear and Cadwell Turnbull will be in our store talking about their new books and the craft of science fiction and fantasy! Cadwell will be sharing his debut novel, The Lesson, which is out June 18th. Elizabeth will be talking about Book Two of her epic fantasy Lotus Kingdoms series, The Red-Stained Wings. Elizabeth Bear is the two-time Hugo Award winning author of TheEternal Sky Trilogy and the Lotus Kingdoms series.  The first book in the series, The Stone in the Skull, has been described as a "glorious and dramatic story" by Publishers Weekly and "vivid, absorbing and thrilling" in a starred review by Kirkus Review. Debut novelist Cadwell Turnbull is the author of new sci-fic novel, The Lesson, one of the first science fiction novels to be set in the Virgin Islands. In their starred review of the novel, Publishers Weekly describes The Lesson as a "rich debut novel about family, love, and loyalty in turbulent times." The Library Journal takes it a step further by saying The Lesson is " a compelling tale of invasive occupation and emotional uprising, Turnbull's debut is complex and enthralling. It's a must for all libraries, and the writer, who crafts speculative stories with black characters on par with Octavia Butler, is definitely one to watch."
