LITERATURE OUT OF TIME
The Art of Using Fiction as a Magic Carpet for Time Travel

Transporting the reader to another time, another world, even worlds that are still in the future, with the reader eagerly stepping aboard the author’s time travel vehicle is a special kind of magic. And it’s the kind of magic that can make or break speculative fiction. New Orleans fiction writer Moira Crone and debut novelist Sanem Ozdural will discuss the art of exploring the future with fiction.

Ms. Ozdural, a practicing attorney who cut her legal teeth as a prosecutor with the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office, is author of LiGa (acronym for Life Game), a novel about a game of the future where the coin is extra years of life.

Both authors, keen observers of the harsh realities of our time, take those realities and multiply them, envisioning a future in which the division between the haves and have-nots reaches epic proportions. Against their dramatic landscapes, they each in different ways explore the fall-out from quests for immortality. The key to the success of such explorations? Moira and Sanem will let you in on that secret.

Sanem will be signing copies of LiGa in the Book Mart immediately after the session.

The Art of Speculative Fiction as Vehicle for Social Commentary – Sanem Ozdural at the Words and Music Literary Feast in New Orleans @ Queen Anne Ballroom
Nov 13 @ 10:15 am – 11:15 am

Sanem Ozdural

Once again, Sanem Ozdural is back in New Orleans for the annual Words and Music Literary Feast. This year’s theme is The Dark Side of Literature & Life, and Sanem is on two panels during the festival. She’s on a panel on Sunday morning (13th November at 10:15am) in the Aesthetics of Literature thread addressing The Art of Speculative Fiction as Vehicle for Social Commentary alongside another author and a literary agent. Anyone who has read Sanem’s books, LiGa™ and the Dark shall do what Light cannot, can’t fail to realise that it is a subject about which Sanem feels very strongly, so I expect it to be a fascinating session.
