A Conversation with Fonda Lee
- December 13, 2021
The author of Jade Legacy comes to DC on Wed., Dec. 15th, at 8 p.m.!
Fantasy and sci-fi author Fonda Lee joins us on stage to talk about Jade Legacy, the final installment of The Green Bone Saga. Taking fantasy out of the European medieval ages, this is an action-packed gangster fantasy set in a period of rapid growth and economic modernization. It’s a story of family, loyalty, and clan rivalries with cars, guns, money, drugs, and magic. Set in a late-20th-century-equivalent era, the precious stone jade is at the center of life on the book’s island of Kekon. Green Bone warriors like the Kaul family have used it to enhance their magical abilities and defend the island from foreign invasion. Now, the Kaul siblings battle rival clans for honor and jade in this epic conclusion to the World Fantasy Award-winning series.
Please RSVP if you are joining us in person or are interested in purchasing a signed book with shipping (limited to those tuning in via livestream).
Doors open to the Langston Room at 7:45 p.m. The program itself will begin at 8 p.m. with an introduction from Busboys and Poets Books director of operations, Lori Barrientos Sanchez, before we start the conversation with Fonda Lee about writing, worldbuiling, and bringing a trilogy to an end. There will be time for Q&A with the audience before the end of the program, as well as the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Jade City, Jade War, and Jade Legacy!
