Author and activist Sarah Gailey: Reading and Discussion

Lecture/Readings

Speculative fiction author and social critic Sarah Gailey will read from her recent books and answer questions about her work. In her first year of eligibility, Gailey was nominated for a Hugo Award for her critique and celebration of the women of Harry Potter, in a category alongside legendary fiction writer Neil Gaiman and the late Carrie Fisher. Her “River of Teeth” novellas — a duology that follows a group of hippopotamus wranglers on a blood-soaked journey down the Mississippi River — was published this year and was an Amazon best-seller. The duology’s characters, described by NPR as “a cross-dressing conwoman, an agender demolitions expert, a heavily pregnant assassin, a queer British-Korean cowboy and a lovesick sharp-shooter” are part of “a wonderfully original debut, guaranteed to cast long, sinister shadows over beloved family board games for years to come.”

Morris Media & Society Lecture: Fear of the Female Voice

Lecture/Readings

Writer and social critic Sarah Gailey will present a Morris Media & Society Lecture entitled "Fear of the Female Voice" at Utah State University. Gailey is a columnist for BarnsAndNoble.com and Tor.com, and tweets regularly on subjects like “how to punch a Nazi” and “how to show up gym rats” under the handle @gaileyfrey, where she describes herself as a “shrill feminist harpy” and “bad influence.” Her commentary often addresses social change through the lens of pop culture. "Sarah's writing invites readers to the visit the other side of knowing," said Debra Jenson, an assistant professor in the Department of Journalism and Communication at Utah State. "She forces us to think about issues from a different perspective, seeing the other side of villains and questioning our image of heroism. The chance to hear her speak directly to Utahns and the issues we care about should not be missed."
