S02 E02 Representation in Speculative Fiction With Author, Courtney Morgan The Sensitivity Reader Podcast

    • Books

 "Science fiction is not predictive; it is descriptive." 
-Ursula K. Le Guin, from the Introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness
Speculative Fiction includes anything and everything that pushes the boundaries of reality: surrealism, fabulism, horror, science fiction, fantasy, horror, magical realism and more! Join author Courtney Morgan and I for a discussion on blurring the boundaries between the real and the unreal and what literature can do to help us understand oppression and marginalization.
 
As a special treat, Courtney reads an excerpt from her story, “Womb, Feather, Bone” from her book, The Seven Autopsies of Norah Hanneman.
