The Future of Live Music

September 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Join three speculative fiction authors in a discussion on why live music must look different after COVID.

Join three universally acclaimed science-fiction novelists, Annalee Newitz (Lambda award winner, contributing opinion editor for the New York Times, founder of io9), Sarah Pinsker (two-time Nebula award winner, singer-songwriter), and Mike Chen (praised by NPR, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, former DJ/musician) for a conversation + Q&A on the future of live events.

What have we lost, perhaps permanently, by avoiding live events during this pandemic? How will people come together physically in the wake of universal pandemic trauma? What have we learned during this hiatus from live events that we want to hold onto? Are there any aspects of the live music experience that we should use this opportunity to drop or improve? 

Tune in for extended musings on these questions and more!

Books by all three authors will be available for purchase through Visible Voice Books up to, during, and after the event.
