Join Terri Favro on June 2 at 6:30pm ET at See-Scape Sci-Fi Bar & Gaming Cafe to celebrate the launch of her sci-fi novel, The Sisters Sputnik (ECW Press, May 2022)!

Hosted by author Eufemia Fantetti, the free Toronto Lit Up event will feature actors performing a dramatic reading from The Sisters Sputnik with Terri Favro. Attendees are encouraged to dress in cosplay as their favourite sci-fi or comic book character! Light refreshments will be provided. A cash bar will also be available.

In the sequel to Sputnik’s Children, The Sisters Sputnik takes ‘undocumented time immigrant’ Debbie Reynolds Biondi and her apprentice Unicorn Girl on a wild ride through alternate worlds, into a possible future where robots rule and humans are banished to the past. It’s an odyssey wrapped in a love story, set in a near-future of artificial people. You can get your copy of the book from Queen Books here.
