Friend of the blog Jaymee Goh tipped us off about a special event honoring Latino Science Fiction at the University of California-Riverside on Wednesday.
Held under the auspices of the school’s Science Fiction and Technoculture Studies program, “A Day of Latino Science Fiction” kicks off its program at 10 a.m. with a panel discussion featuring authors:
- Mario Acevedo (Werewolf Smackdown, Felix Gomez series)
- Rudy Ch. García (The Closet of Discarded Dreams,)
- Ernest Hogan (Cortez on Jupiter, High Aztech)
- Beatrice Pita and Rosaura Sánchez (Lunar Braceros)
The program resumes at 2 p.m. with a panel featuring longtime TV director Jesús Treviño (Babylon 5, Star Trek: Voyager & Deep Space Nine) and Michael Sedano from the long-running Latino lit site La Bloga. The event is free to the public, and the flyer is under the cut.
