In a year where Thor is a woman, Captain America is black, and an all-women Kickstarter anthology called Women Destroy Science Fiction raised over one thousand percent of its goal, what is left to do? Who are the new voices people should be reading? This will be a great panel for readers and writers alike.

The "Diversity in Genre" roundtable will be an open dialogue which will go in-depth on issues of race, gender, disability, sexuality, nationality, and class in science fiction and fantasy fiction. Authors P. Djeli Clark, A.T. Greenblatt, Jason Harris, and Sherin Nicole will participate in the discussion lead by Day Al-Mohamed and Sarah Pinsker.

Attendees are welcome to participate in the BSFS book club before the roundtable at 6:30PM, where we will discuss the Nebula, BSFA, Arthur C. Clarke Award, and Locus Award winning new classic, "Ancillary Justice," by Ann Leckie.
