Heads up, all you Bay-area folks: Nisi Shawl will be reading and signing at Borderlands Books tomorrow from 1-2:30 p.m. It's a wonderful bookstore run by people who love science fiction, and it accommodates events very comfortably. I read there back in October 2004 with Eileen Gunn and Gwyneth Jones. After each of us read for about fifteen minutes, we conducted a panel-style discussion with the audience, which was stimulating and enjoyable. The audience was great, and when a bunch of us went out for wine and tapas at a neighborhood place afterward, we took a piece of the discussion with us.
Borderlands is located at 866 Valencia Street. (Phone: 415.824.8203) The store's website provides directions, for anyone who needs them. Oh, and just so you know, they carry lots of Aqueduct's books.
