Book Launch | Sycorax’s Daughters: A Horror Anthology of Prose and Poetry Author’s Discussion and Book Signing
Auburn Avenue Research Library on African-American Culture and History
101 Auburn Ave NE, Atlanta, GA • Saturday, February 25, 2017 • 2pm-5pm
In addition to being Black History Month, February is also Women’s Horror Month. Come participate in a panel discussion and meet the African-American women writers of the horror anthology Sycorax’s Daughters. These thought-provoking twenty-eight stories and fourteen poems cover creatures imagined—vampires, ghosts, and mermaids, as well as the unexpected price paid by women struggling for freedom and validation in the past—slavery to science-fiction futures with transhumans and alternate realities.
“Sycorax’s Daughters introduces us to a whole new legion of gothic writers. Their stories drip with history and blood leaving us with searing images and a chill emanating from shadows gathered in the corner. This anthology is historic in its recognition of women of color writers in a genre that usually doesn’t know what to do with us.”
Jewelle Gomez, author, The Gilda Stories
