31-01-2019 12:00:00 31-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York A Celebration of Ursula K. Le Guin | 7:30 PM Fellow writers pay tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin, who passed away in January 2018. "She was able to reimagine many concepts we take to be natural, shared, and unalterable—gender, utopia, creation, war, family, the city, the country—and reveal the all-too-human constructions at their center," wrote Zadie Smith. "That these gifts—more common to philosophers and scientists—should have appeared in a writer was wonder enough. But on top of that there were her sentences, as elegant and beautiful as any written in the twentieth century." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=334787 92Y 92Y
