A Word with Writers--George RR Martin & Diana Gabaldon
Bookworks, Saturday, May 10 at 7pm
Tickets for the event are $7 for open seating. The first seven rows of the theater will be sold in advance for $20.

Tickets will be available through the KiMo Theater ticketing, at 421 Central, or online at kimotickets.com. Attendees will be allowed to bring in one previously purchased book, and authors will sign a limit of two books per person total.

Bookworks and the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation are collaborating on a new lecture series, a Word with Writers, which will feature writers in conversation with one another. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation.

The inaugural lecture is May 10, 7pm, at the KiMo Theater.

The first authors to feature as part of the series are George RR Martin and Diana Gabaldon, both renowned sci-fi and fantasy authors who worked together on a new anthology, Dangerous Women, published in January.

Dangerous Women is an anthology edited by Mr. Martin, featuring Gabaldon and other women writers. Martin is the author of the immensely popular Game of Thrones series. He is a novelist and short story writer in the realms of fantasy, horror, and science fiction, as well as a screenwriter and television producer. Martin is best known for A Song of Ice and Fire, his internationally best-selling series that HBO has adapted for its TV series, Game of Thrones. Martin serves as the series’ Co-Executive Producer. He is also the owner of the newly renovated Jean Cocteau Theater in Santa Fe, which shows independent movies and the Game of Thrones series. In 2011, Time Magazine named Martin as one of its 100 most influential people in the world.

Martin’s author-in-conversation, Diana Gabaldon, is the author of the popular Outlander series. Gabaldon’s work merges multiple genres, including sci-fi, fantasy, romance, historical fiction, and mystery. A trained zoologist, Gabaldon was a science editor and university professor before embarking upon a successful career as a novelist. She splits her time between Arizona and Santa Fe. A new Outlander book, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, comes out in June.
