Nisi Shawl Reads Tonight at the Elliott Bay Book Company

Nisi Shawl will be reading tonight at 7 p.m. at the Elliot Bay Book Company. Here's the info given on the store's website:

Co-presented with the CENTRAL DISTRICT FORUM FOR ARTS & IDEAS. Seattle fiction writer, critic, writing teacher (and former bookseller) Nisi Shawl has recently added one more 'distinction' to her long list of accomplishments: 2008 James Tiptree Jr. Award winner for her short story collection, Filter House (Aqueduct Press). The James Tiptree Jr. Award, an annual literary prize for science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender, has been awarded each year since 1991 at WisCon, the world's only feminist-oriented science fiction convention. Please join us in celebrating the award with a reading of some of the stories, many of which deal with technology, African-based magical systems, and, of course, the problems and possibilities of gender. Filter House was also named one of the best books of 2008 by Publishers Weekly.
