Join Nalo Hopkinson on Tuesday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the University Book Store (4326 University Way NE in Seattle) as she signs and reads from her new book FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS.

One of the most significant voices in modern Caribbean and American fiction, Nalo Hopkinson’s imaginative works of speculative fiction and fantasy have won numerous awards—including the John W. Campbell Award, the Locus Award, and the World Fantasy Award. A mix of modern life and Afro-Caribbean folklore, FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS, her highly anticipated new collection of previously uncollected fiction—featuring everything from chickens that breathe fire to adults who eat children—hits shelves this August. Joining us as the fifth speaker in the Clarion West Summer Reading series, Hopkinson will talk about her work as a speculative fiction writer and read from some of her most recent or current projects.
