As part of the GSEA's Spring Virtual Talk Series, we will be hosting (on Zoom) NY Times best selling YA Fantasy author Tracy Deonn this coming Monday (5/10 from Noon-1:30 PM)! Tracy will be giving a short reading of her creative work and a presentation on her research process, which will be followed by a moderated talk on history as fanfiction, fandom culture, and race in the SF/fantasy communities.

For those unfamiliar with Tracy's work, to get an idea of the type of interventions she's making in the genre, I highly recommend an article she recently published in Tor, "Every King Arthur Retelling is Fanfic About Who Gets to Be Legendary": https://www.tor.com/2021/03/23/every-king-arthur-retelling-is-fanfic-about-who-gets-to-be-legendary/comment-page-1/
