Tonight, we were fortunate to meet the amazing and super accomplished Nnedi Okorafor, an international award-winning New York Times bestselling novelist of science fiction and fantasy.
Dr. Ellen Stockwell, Assistant Professor at Penn State Harrisburg, moderator for the event, asked Ms. Okorafor, given that it’s Election Day, whether literature can bring diversity to light? Ms. Okorafor answered that speculative fiction can increase understanding among cultures, races, etc. Her remarks were informative and inspiring. It is no wonder that she has such a loyal and diverse fan base! Among the 100 attendees, some had traveled considerable distance to be there this evening.
Nnedi Okorafor is a vibrant and inventive author. We can’t wait for her next book, and hope there are many to come!
Our thanks also to Dr. Stockwell, and to the Hershey Country Club.
