So Lucky is out 15 May, so I’ve started to add things to my calendar.

  • March 13, Orlando, FL. ICFA: Marriott Airport Hotel, Vista A, 4:30 pm
  • March 27, Kirkland, WA: SFWA Reading Series, Wilde Rover Irish Pub and Restaurant, 7:00pm.

First up is the International Conference for the Fantastic in the Arts, in Orlando, FL. As the first event of the conference I’ll be doing a reading with the fabulous Maria Dahvana Headley and Bryan Camp. Maria just gave me a lovely blurb for So Lucky:

“Nicola Griffith is a brilliant creator of fierce female protagonists. With So Lucky, she fires a gritty, scary, wrathful, sometimes blisteringly funny broadside at the monsters of ableist culture.”

We’re all represented by the same agency, The Gernert Company, and we’re hoping to serve monster cocktails (when I know for sure I’ll talk more about that). It’ll be my first ever reading from Lucky. The first is always special. So if you happen to be at ICFA, do drop by.

My second reading will be here in Seattle. Well, okay, actually Kirkland, when I join Nancy Kress and Cat Rambo for the SFWA Reading Series at the Wilde Rover Irish Pub and Restaurant. And, hey, it’s a pub! With beer! It will be awesome!

There may be something in the midwest in April (not sure yet) and of course there will be many things in May. The rest of the summer is in flux. When I know, you’ll know.
