On March 6, internationally-known award-winning science fiction author Connie Willis will read and discuss her work.
She is the author of many novels and short stories of fantasy and science fiction, including Doomsday Book—winner of the Nebula and Hugo Awards for Best Science Fiction Novel, Lincoln's Dreams—winner of the John W. Campbell Award for Best Science Fiction Novel, Bellwether, and To Say Nothing of the Dog.
She has edited the annual Nebula Awards collection and is co-editor of A Liberated Woman, a collection of science fiction stories by and about women.
Willis has won an astonishing total of six Nebula Awards (given by the Science Fiction Writers of America) and eight Hugo Awards (given by the World Science Fiction Convention), and is the first author to have ever won both awards in all four fiction categories—novel, novella, novelette, and short story. She currently holds the record for the most Nebula Awards ever won by a science fiction or fantasy author. Her work thrives on finely shaded character development and interaction.
She is also a witty and entertaining speaker who has penned essays on the art of writing humor and comedy.
Please join Connie Willis for what is sure to be a most engaging evening.
