The New York Review of Science Fiction Readings and the Wold Newton Reading Extravaganza present the 90th birthday celebration of science fiction legend Carol Emshwiller.

This is an extremely special occasion. Aside from being one of sf’s foremost writers and teachers, Carol has been a good friend to both the reading series and the magazine through the years. We are so pleased to host this!

The first event will on on Carol’s birthday — Tuesday, April 12th — at our usual venue in SoHo, and the second will be on Monday April 18th at WORD in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The NYRSF Reading event will include a biographical interview and some surprises, including a digital and physical art exhibit.

The WORD event will include birthday magic from acclaimed comedy magician Magic Brian along with the main event, an interview of Carol with science fiction scholar Matt Cheney.

Come celebrate the life and work of one of the pioneers of feminist science fiction literature who helped define what sf would and could be.

The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and place, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list and the Web.

After the event, please join us for dinner and drinks nearby.

Carol Emshwiller’s 90th Birthday

  1. Ah, yes, the face that launched a thousand or so Emsh covers for SF magazines and paperbacks. I’d recognize it anywhere, even though she’s about to turn 90. I hope she has a great day. I’ll wave happy birthday from a respectful virtual distance.
