Announcing It’s the End of the World as We Know it: A Dystopian Fiction Panel Discussion


If your taste in books favors ravaged landscapes, troubling futures, and oft-unsettling commentary on society, it’s a good time to be a reader. And as dystopian fiction goes through more and more permutations, we wanted to get some of our favorite writers together to discuss it. This panel will explore the current wave of dystopian fiction, how it mixes with other genres, where it’s going, and what it says about literature and society in general. Our panel will consist of:

Porochista Khakpour

Emily St. John Mandel

Lincoln Michel

Shya Scanlon

Carola Dibbell

Moderating the panel will be Rahawa Haile and Tobias Carroll.

This event will take place on April 29th at McNally Jackson, located at 52 Prince Street, NY, NY. Facebook RSVP here.
