Three Rooms Press presents ECO-FICTION. NOW: An Inside Look at a Vital New Genre, an intriguing and important discussion by internationally renowned thought leaders about the growth of the eco-fiction literary genre, which uses ecological topics and themes to develop genuinely creative work.
The discussion will include a reading from the forthcoming Three Rooms Press release Downdrift: an eco-fiction by UCLA Professor of Information Studies Johanna Drucker. Downdrift has received widespread critical acclaim, with Kirkus Reviews raving, “Wildly imaginative, laugh-out-loud funny, and ultimately heartbreaking . . . Drucker’s beautifully subtle message isn’t just for pet owners or environmentalists. It’s for all of us.” Foreword Reviews exclaims, “Laughing or crying, Drucker skewers the current cultural moment in a novel extrapolation of epic proportions!”
Copies of DOWNDRIFT will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street (btwn W. 4th & Bleecker), 212-989-9319.
Admission $10 (includes a free drink). Details: email@example.com
