Artist Talk: Jeff VanderMeer

Thursday, March 9, 2017

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Florida-based author Jeff VanderMeer holds a reading on the UH campus, followed by a Q&A session. 
VanderMeer's New York Times-bestselling trilogy Souther Reach blends speculative fiction, eco-fiction, metafiction and horror, and has earned him a Shirley Jackson Award and prompted the New Yorker to dub him today's "weird Thoreau." 
Part of the interdisciplinary series "Cargo and Carries: Sites, Zones and Borders," the event is free and open to the public. “Cargo and Carriers: Sites, Zones and Borders" features lectures, performances, screenings and workshops by renowned visiting artists and scholars. Presentations explore spatial practices and projects including poetic and political sites, geography, spatial agency, interventions and crossings.
