Pacific Northwest readers: there is going to be a memorial for Octavia Butler at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle on March 2nd, 2006, at 7:30 pm. My class schedule will make it difficult for me to attend, but if I am able to make it down to Seattle I’ll post here so I know to say hi to any readers attending.
Tip-off on Whileaway. Also information there on a memorial in New York March 3rd.
I’ve also posted a bit more about Octavia Butler on tekanji’s blog, including links to some of her work available online.
