Willammette Writers Conference
Why We Build the Wall: Exploring Hadestown
Join these Hugo, Nebula, and Norton award-winning science fiction and fantasy authors as they explore the Tony Award-winning musical Hadestown and its themes of mythology, redemption, forgiveness, love and the world we dream about.
Catherynne Valente, Amal El-Mohtar, Seanan McGuire
August 15: 2pm-2:50pm EST
Modernizing Fairy Tales and Myths
Fairy tales and myths are a part of cultures around the world and they provide rich and varied inspiration for fantastic fiction. Each generation revives these stories, bringing them into modern times, repurposed and remade to reflect today’s issues and concerns. In this remaking, do they retain their original purposes or are these tales too changed? What can they tell us about our past or future selves? Moreover, why does our love of these stories never grow old?
Speakers: Catherynne Valente, Adam Stemple, Rebecca Roanhorse, Seanan McGuire, Victor LaValle
August 20: 9:30-11pm EST
