The Keynote Address

Nalo Hopkinson writes science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction; call it whatever you want, her novels and stories are full of the unreal, the futuristic, the unlikely, the impossible.

She was born in Jamaica, in the Caribbean. She lived for years in Guyana as well, and in Trinidad/Tobago. But the bulk of her life so far has been spent in Toronto, Canada. After about 35 years of that, she moved to the USA for a professorship in Creative Writing.

She has won numerous awards for her fiction and other literary activities.

Her dream home is on a cliff overlooking an ocean, with lots of room on the grounds for a workshop and a writing cottage. And fruit trees. Or maybe truffle-bearing oak trees. Can’t you just picture it?
