CoNZealand: MY PROGRAMME

Yes, I am attending the World Science Fiction Convention which was to be in Wellington New Zealand, but which has gone online for obvious reasons.


I have 3 items on the programme: 
a Reading, a Panel and a Kaffeklatch.
If you are also attending, 
you will find me at these times for the above events:
Reading:

Event description:  
   I shall be reading the first chapter of my new (as yet unpublished) book, 
   THE FUGITIVE QUEEN
Date: Wednesday, 29 July
Time: 16:30-16:55, Please remember this is the time in NZ.
Place: Reading Room 2 (Programming)

 


Panel:

Event description: 
Nevertheless, She Persisted: 
    The Explosion of the Heroine in the past 50 Years 
    Protaganists in SF and fantasy used to be primary male. Heinlein’s
juveniles, for example, although featuring a strong female secondary
character, had male leads. This began to change in the late
1960s, with books like Rite of Passage, and now non-male protagonists
are common. 

    The panel looks at the trend, discusses its implications,
and talks about some of their favorites. 

    Catherine Lundoff  (Moderator), Maiya Ibrahim, Lee Murray , Glenda Larke
