The Kindred Reading Series

Based in the NYC area, we present the talents of authors of color who write Science Fiction & Fantasy. We feature writers of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds including long-established award-winning authors as well as newer voices. Founded in 2012 by K. Tempest Bradford, N.K. Jemisin, Daniel José Older, Kiini Ibura Salaam, Ibi Aanu Zoboi, and curated by Jennifer Marie Brissett.
