GeekGirlCon Schedule

If you’re Seattle local and heading out to GeekGirlCon this weekend, I’ll be there as both a vendor and panelist. Come stop by Books & Chainsbooth, I-117, and say hello! My panelist schedule is below the map as well.

GeekGirlCon Map

My Panelist Schedule:

4:00-5:00 PM — Meet & Geek: A Networking Event for Mavens-in-the-Making
Hermoine Room — Meet mentors and others wanting to break into geeky career pathways at this interactive meetup hosted by Sonia Michaels and Alexandra Lucas.

10:00-11:00 AM — Transhumanism in Comics and Fiction
Storm Room — Comics and fiction have explored the effects of transhumanism and bioengineering in everything from functional immortality and consciousnesses in simulated realities to cerebral implants and bionic parts. Do we always need dystopian warnings, or can these advances bring us closer to a better, brighter us? Does fiction predict our future at all?

EDIT: Books & Chains moved to booth I-117!

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
