SECOND TUESDAY PRESENTS LARISSA LAI IN CONVERSATION WITH KAI CHENG THOM
July 14, 6:30 pm-8:00 pm
Larissa Lai, author of the award-winning sci-fi novel “The Tiger Flu” sits in conversation with Kai Cheng Thom to talk about their recent work.
ABOUT THE TIGER FLU
“The Tiger Flu” is the visionary novel by Larissa Lai, her first book in 16 years, which won the 2019 Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction. In The Tiger Flu, a community of women who reproduce asexually are sent into exile by the male-dominated Salt Water City. The women then go to war against a world-wide pandemic, technology and the powerful men that threaten them with extinction.
Bold and wildly imaginative, disorienting and also dangerous, “The Tiger Flu” is a female hero’s saga, a cyberpunk thriller and a convention-breaking cautionary tale, all of which are very appropriate for our complicated times.
