While Washington DC is not officially on my book tour, nevertheless I will be there between the 19th and 22nd for the Nebula Awards Weekend, at which SFWA, the writers’ organization of which I am president, will hand out — logically enough — the Nebula Awards for excellence in science fiction and fantasy writing. As part of the weekend’s festivities there will be a mass signing event, at which you can meet and have books signed by, some of the planet’s most excellent science fiction and fantasy writers, including but not limited to Connie Willis, Joe Haldeman, Paolo Bacigalupi, Allen Steele, Mary Robinette Kowal and yours truly. Here’s the complete list of scheduled participants. Yes, this is a whole lot of science fiction and fantasy awesomeness, all in one place. That’s what the Nebula Awards Weekend is all about.
When will this take place? On Friday, May 20, 2011 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00p.m., at the Washington Hilton, 1919 Connecticut NW.
Need books in order to be signed? We’ve got you covered: There’ll be a “book depot” with books from the participating authors (including me) at the Hilton. Here are details on that (scroll down just a bit).
While the mass signing is part of the Nebula Awards Weekend, it’s open to anyone and everyone — and you are anyone, so that means you! So swing on by, meet some of your favorite authors and get their autographs for yourself or someone you love/like/are in some way obligated to. And of course, feel free to share the news of the mass signing with friends/family/complete strangers.
See you there!
