N.K. Jemisin in Conversation with Entertainment Weekly’s David Canfield

Apr 9, 2020

N.K. Jemisin is the new queen of fantasy.

She’s the only author in history to win the Hugo Award for Best Novel three years in a row, and is now launching an epic new series with The City We Became. An imagined vision of New York like you’ve never seen before, the book showcases Jemisin’s singular gifts for world-building, allegory, and addictive plotting. Join N.K. Jemisin (the Broken Earth trilogy) as she talks with Entertainment Weekly’s David Canfield about her new concoction, the political potential of fantasy, and the experience of launching a book—and, maybe, writing some more—during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
