“The Works and Life of Vonda N. McIntyre”
Sunday, August 15, 12:00 PM
Described by the Guardian as “foremost among a legion of new female science-fiction authors in the early 1970s,” Memorial Guest of Honor Vonda N. McIntyre sold her first short story in 1969 and was one of the first successful graduates of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers’ Workshop in 1970, launching a career that would span the next four decades. During that time, she became only the second woman to win a Nebula Award and the third to win the Hugo Award for Best Novel. Before her death in 2019, she wrote 16 novels (five of them Star Trek tie-ins), published a collection of her early short fiction, edited two anthologies, won a second Nebula, and founded the Clarion West Writers Workshop. Join us to celebrate the life, work, and legacy of this speculative fiction icon.
