Charles Martell Author Lecture: Kim Stanley Robinson
The Friends of the Library invites you to join us for a presentation by famed sci-fi author Kim Stanley Robinson.

According to a New Yorker article, Robinson is "generally acknowledged as one of the greatest living science-fiction writers," while The Atlantic magazine described him as "the gold-standard of realistic, and highly literary, science-fiction writing." He will be discussing his disturbingly timely novel, "The Ministry for the Future," which has been described as is a masterpiece of the imagination that uses fictional eyewitness accounts to tell the story of how climate change will affect us all not in a post-apocalyptic world, but rather a future that is almost upon us. Barack Obama chose the novel as one of his favorite books of the year. Robinson has authored nineteen novels, and he has won numerous awards, including the Hugo Award for Best Novel, the Nebula Award for Best Novel, and the World Fantasy Award.

Purchase Kim Stanley Robinson's books at your favorite bookstore, and join us for an engaging conversation with the author.
