Resistance in Dystopia: Gabe Calderón & J.M. Miro
September 24 at 11:30am
Journey into two incredibly vivid, dangerous and wonderous new worlds as authors Gabe Calderón and J.M. Miro (pen name for author Steven Price) present their riveting new books. Set in a dystopian future in which a faceless spiritual entity has infiltrated the world to subjugate humans, Calderon’s Magodiz powerfully centres the vital cultural legacy of Two-Spirit peoples to their communities. Miro’s exquisitely written Ordinary Monsters presents a catastrophic vision of the Victorian world – and of the gifted, broken children who must save it while navigating the nature of difference, belonging and the shadowy edges of the monstrous. Calderon and Miro come together to discuss their masterful use of fantasy to illustrate and augment the challenges their characters face, all of which have real-world significance.
