Celebrated science fiction writer, Orson Scott Card, at Ripon College March 30
Orson Scott Card, author of celebrated science fiction novels Ender’s Game (1985) and its sequel Speaker for the Dead (1986), will speak at Ripon College March 30.
The talk, “The World-Nation: Fantasy, Goal or Nightmare?”, will run from 4:30 to 5:45 in Great Hall, Harwood Memorial Union, on the campus. His appearance is sponsored by the International Relations Club.
Card has excelled in many roles, including novelist, critic, public speaker, essayist, columnist, playwright /script writer, poet and political activist. While he is best known for his science fiction writing, he also has offered political, religious and social commentary in his columns and other writing.
Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead both won Hugo and Nebula Awards, making Card the only author to win both of science fiction’s top U.S. prizes in consecutive years. A feature film adaptation of Ender’s Game, which Card co-produced, was released in 2013.
Card is a professor of English at Southern Virginia University, has written two books about creative writing, hosts writing bootcamps and workshops, and serves as a judge in the Writers of the Future contest. He is a great-great-grandson of Brigham Young and a practicing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).
