    Friday, July 12 -11:00 AM, Salon 3
    Some of GOH Tananarive Due's work, including Joplin's GhostThe Between, and The Good House, recovers African-American history through tales of the supernatural. She has written, "Sometimes fiction is the only way to make sense of the insensible." Panelists will explore these and other tales that use the power of the supernatural to engage with the horrors and struggles of Black Americans past and present.

    Tananarive Due is a teacher in the creative writing MFA program at Antioch University Los Angeles and has been inducted into Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism's Hall of Achievement, but she is best known as an author of speculative fiction. She has won the New Voice in Literature Award, the Carl Brandon Society’s Kindred Award, the American Book Award, and the NAACP Image Award, and her short fiction has appeared in several best-of-the-year anthologies. With her husband, Steven Barnes, she writes the Tennyson Hardwick mystery series. Join us as we welcome her to Readercon and discuss her impressive body of work.

    Saturday, July 13 - 11:00 AM, Salon B
    From the 24-hour news cycle to online journalism, the media plays an enormous role in our society, but it tends to make less of an appearance in fantasy works. L.
