DESCRIPTION:
Cal State LA to honor women sci-fi and fantasy writers at May 12-14 celebration

Cal State LA will honor sci-fi and fantasy creators Tananarive Due and Natalie Chaidez during Eagle-Con, a celebration of science fiction, fantasy, speculative media, and comic books.

The theme of Eagle-Con 2016 is “Pushing Boundaries: Gender, Identity, Expression.” The event will be held May 12-14, 2016 on the campus of Cal State LA.

Due is a producer and award-winning author of The Living Blood and Ghost Summer. Chaidez is the writer and producer of Heroes, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Hunters.

“Tananarive Due and Natalie Chaidez are exceptional writers and professionals. Throughout their careers they have developed powerful, complex, and dynamic women characters who inhabit fascinating worlds. Their work and accomplishments truly exemplify this year’s theme,” said Cal State LA Professor Patrick Sharp, Eagle-Con’s faculty director.

Due will be presented the inaugural Eagle-Con Octavia E. Butler Memorial Award on May 12 at 5:30 p.m. in the University-Student Union, Los Angeles Room. The award is inspired by the late Octavia E. Butler, who was a pioneering science fiction writer, a MacArthur Fellowship recipient, and an alumna of Cal State LA. She died in 2006.

As part of the event’s culminating program, Chaidez will receive the Eagle-Con Prism Award on May 14 at 4:30 p.m. in the University-Student Union, Los Angeles Room. The Prism Award recognizes artists who create futuristic worlds that are culturally and ethnically diverse.

Eagle-Con 2016 at Cal State LA will bring together science fiction, fantasy, comic books, literature, and film and television to explore issues of identity and representation from cultural and academic perspectives. The event is supported by the Art Directors Guild and the Costume Designers Guild.
