#BLF2019# GEO SCI-FI

GEO SCI-FI: SCIENCE FICTION AND REGIONALITY
Regina Kanyu Wang, Peng Simeng, Zhang Ran, Bao Shu

Wednesday, March 27, 6:00 PM
60 RMB | BW 27-1 | The Bookworm – TICKETS

It is common for writers to set science fiction stories in fictional universes, but equally common for them to pick up an existent region/city/territory as the background, like Kim Stanley Robinson did in NY2140 or Hao Jingfang did in Folding Beijing. How do those places differ in reality and in science fiction? What do writers do to create the disparities and why? In this panel, science fiction writers will talk about the secret of turning a familiar place into a unique stage.

From our friends at Great Leap, BLF Happy Hour!
All tickets for 6:00 pm events this week can enjoy one of our Great Leap drafts as their complimentary welcome drink.
