First Person: Authors Talk
Editor Susan DeFreitas: Dispatches from Anarres
Hipfishmonthly presents a special virtual First Person: Authors Talk on Friday , February 11 at 7:30pm. Host Heather Hirschi welcomes Susan DeFreitas, editor of the anthology Dispatches from Anarres, Tales in Tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin, newly published by Portland’s Forest Avenue Press, currently a Powell’s best seller, featuring 31 Portland writers.
The virtual event also features three contributing writers, C.A. McDonald, James Mapes, and Nicole Rosevear.
Named for the anarchist utopia in Ursula K. Le Guin’s science fiction classic The Dispossessed, Dispatches from Anarres embodies the anarchic spirit of Le Guin’s hometown of Portland, Oregon, while paying tribute to her enduring vision. In stories that range from fantasy to sci fi to realism, some of Portland’s most vital voices have come together to celebrate Le Guin’s lasting legacy and influence on that most subversive of human faculties: the imagination.
