The utopian/environmental sci-fi author, known for such masterpieces as the Mars Trilogy and 2312, will be in Phoenix for a pair of events in conjunction with ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination.
First, he will join a panel of award-winning authors and scientists from Project Hieroglyph at the Crescent Ballroom on Wednesday, Oct. 22. Founded in partnership with author Neal Stephenson (who sadly won’t be at the event), Project Hieroglyph examines the link between scientific discovery and creative writing. Single tickets are available with purchase of the anthology Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future from Changing Hands Bookstore.
Then on Friday, Oct. 24 Robinson will give a talk at Changing Hands Phoenix. Entitled “The Chauvet Cave Paintings and the Human Mind”, he will examine the lives of Paleolithic humans and their development of art, in conjunction with his recent novel, Shaman. Admission is free.
