An Evening with Samuel R. Delany
Join us for a conversation with award-winning author and critic Samuel Delany, whose works deal heavily in Afrofuturism, LGBTQ issues, and gender theory. Prior to retiring from academia in 2010, he taught literature and creative writing at Temple University. By the age of 27, he had won four Nebula Awards and two Hugo Awards. In 2002, he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, and in 2013 he was named the 31st Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The Lambda Literary Report has named him as one of the 50 people who has done the most to change society’s view of homosexuality in the last half-century.
