Stars In His Pocket: A Conversation With Samuel Delany & Kara Keeling

“Stars in his pocket… : A Conversation with Samuel R. Delany and Kara Keeling" took place on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in the Lownes Room of the John Hay Library. The event included an exhibit of Samuel Delany’s works and manuscripts from the Library’s collection. Samuel Delany is a highly laureled writer of science fiction and cultural criticism, in which he explores questions of sexuality, gender, race, language, perception, and the fluctuating conceptions of “the human.” His prodigious literary talents are intimately informed by his experiences as a gay black man, the grandson of a freed slave and nephew of famous civil rights workers. He is also an acute observer of off-the-grid urban spaces, the textures of micro-neighborhoods, and queer locations.
