SPACE CRONE: Maria Dahvana Headley, So Mayer and Sarah Shin
Thursday 18 May, 7pm, London Review Bookshop
Ursula K. Le Guin witnessed and contributed to many of the twentieth century’s rebellions and upheavals, including women’s liberation, the Civil Rights movement and US anti-war and environmental activism. Spanning fifty years of her life and work, Space Crone brings together Le Guin’s writings on feminism and gender for the first time, offering new insights into her imaginative, multispecies feminist consciousness: from its roots in deep ecology and philosophies of non-violence to her self-education about racism and her writing on motherhood and ageing.
So Mayer and Sarah Shin, the editors of Space Crone, will be in conversation with writer Maria Dahvana Headley to explore monstrosity, gender and the role of the imagination in Le Guin's writing and speculative fiction.
