As part of the Big Read Morongo Basin, Space Cowboy Books will host a panel discussion featuring local authors Jon Christopher, Susan Rukeyser, Gabriel Hart and Jean-Paul Garnier, each having authored novels in different sub-genres of science fiction. The panelists will discuss the differences and similarities between speculative, literary, dystopian, and science fiction and the themes of STATION ELEVEN. The book's author Emily St. John Mandel has been surprised to see STATION ELEVEN categorized as each of these genres.
