Attention geeks, feminists, and geek feminists: Sam Maggs is coming to Guelph!
While my inner fangirl is screaming, perhaps you're wondering "Sam WHO?"
Rest assured, you very much want to know who Sam Maggs is:
1) A proud Canuck with plenty of awesome writing cred in several forms of geek culture, including gaming, comic books, fantasy and sci-fi role play!
2) A devout culture vulture whose amazing articles on feminism and fandom have been featured in the Guardian, Marie Claire, and the National Post, among others.
3) A fierce feminist who, not content with being badass all by herself, collaborates with others to bring fab femme-created media to the world with anthologies like The Secret Loves of Geek Girls!
4) An author whose two most recent books - Wonder Women and Girl Squads - are focussed on true stories of girls and women finding success in politics, sport, science and art - including women of colour, queer women and trans women!
5) An inclusive, collaborative supporter of feminist media - the world needs more like her!
Be sure to catch Ms. Maggs in the ebar on Tuesday, October 9th at 7pm where she will be reading, chatting up and signing her newest release!
