Author N.K. Jemisin

"The most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation” will be in Rochester on Thursday. The New York Times lauds N.K. Jemisin as a fantasy master. Her book, “The City We Became,” is this year’s pick for Rochester Reads. The annual event encourages people across the region to read the same book and discuss it with fellow lovers of literature.

This hour, we discuss how you can get involved and we hear from the author, who joined WXXI Classical music director and host Mona Seghatoleslami (a big Jemisin fan!) in a pre-recorded conversation about her work.

Our guests:

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
Megan Mack is the executive producer of "Connections with Evan Dawson" and live/televised engagement programming.
