Jeff VanderMeer - Borne

Upcoming Event
Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Best-known for his Southern Reach trilogy, VanderMeer is a three-time World Fantasy Award winner as well as a teacher, publisher, and frequent anthologist. His latest vision of the future finds a ruined city where people survive by scavenging. Once dominated by the Company, a biotech firm, the city is now menaced by a giant, flying bear, the maddened creation of the Company’s cruelty and failed experiments. But when Rachel finds a tiny green lump clinging to the bear, she falls under its spell. Naming it Borne, she nurtures it and teaches it to talk, glimpsing in its innocence an antidote to the devastation around her. But the Company may still be in operation and as Borne grows, this creature threatens the city’s precarious balance of power.

VanderMeer will be in conversation with the writer Ann VanderMeer, his wife and frequent collaborator on anthologies including Sisters of the Revolution.
