Jeff VanderMeer | Southern Reach Trilogy

Thu, September 25, 2014 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Jeff VanderMeer is the author of the Southern Reach Trilogy, a “compelling, elegant and existential” (Los Angeles Times) chronicle of a forgotten, foreboding wilderness area called Area X and the mysterious government agency tasked with investigating it. Think Jurassic Park meets Lost. The multiple World Fantasy Award-winning VanderMeer has written a score of other popular novels, works of nonfiction, and story collections. He is also a widely respected editor, publisher, and teacher of science fiction and fantasy writing.

The Academy of Natural Sciences will be at the event with a live owl and rabbit so you can learn more about the creatures that inhabit The Southern Reach's enigmatic Area X.

Hosted by Geekadelphia and the Free Library of Philadelphia.
