Caitlin Kittredge and Elizabeth Bonesteel
Thursday, April 14

Come see these fantastic authors discuss fantasic female characters in genre fiction!

Caitlin Kittredge has written fifteen novels for adults and teens, including the award-winning Iron Codex trilogy. She is releasing Grim Tidings, the follow-up to her urban fantasy novel Black Dog, on April 19.

Elizabeth Bonesteel began making up stories at the age of five, in an attempt to battle insomnia. Her debut novel, The Cold Between, went on sale March 8, and it’s really racking up amazing reviews.

The event is free, and food and drinks will be provided.


Local Events

Conbust 2016
Friday, April 1, through Sunday, April 3
Northampton, Mass.

What sets ConBust apart from most other sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and/or gaming conventions is its focus on the female members of the participating community. While the various realms of geekdom remain stereotypically male-dominated, ConBust is held to celebrate the work and participation of women amongst these genres.

Muppet Madness
Friday, April 15, through Monday, April 18
Brattle Theatre

This year's event includes a double feature of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. And the irresistible Muppet Movie sing-along!

Cambridge Science Festival
Friday, April 15, through Sunday, April 24
Cambridge, Mass.

The Cambridge Science Festival is an annual 10-day celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math in Cambridge and New England.

Dimensions of Doctor Who
Saturday, April 23, 7:00 p.m.
MIT Museum

What do you get when you combine the TARDIS, a sonic screwdriver, and local scientists? An evening dedicated to exploring the science of Doctor Who! Hear from researchers who will share how their work is bringing our world closer to that of the Doctor’s. Excellent for Whovians, science fiction fans, and science lovers alike.

Watch City Steampunk Festival
Saturday, May 7
Waltham, Mass.

The only outdoor Steampunk Festival in New England.

Readercon 27
Thursday, July 7, through  Sunday, July 10
Quincy, Mass.
GOH: Catherynne M. Valente and Tim Powers

Although Readercon is modeled on science fiction conventions, there is no art show, no costumes, no gaming, and almost no media. Instead, Readercon features a near-total focus on the written word.

The program consists of two tracks each of panel discussions, author readings, and solo talks or discussion groups, plus kaffeeklatsches (intimate gatherings with an author) and autograph signings.
