The Death of Belief: American Gods’ Impact on Modern Fantasy

Mar 04, 2017, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
WSCC 603

Many of us are saying that the world is going to hell this year – and perhaps we can’t blame it all on the election, or the passing of transcendent artists Prince, Bowie, Cohen, Berry and White.  Maybe the gods have truly deserted us.  Or, if we are to believe the writing of Neil Gaiman…we’ve deserted the gods.  Join bestselling authors Brom, Richard Kadrey, Dave Bara and Seanan McGuire, as they talk about philosophy, mythology, belief, disbelief, intolerance and skepticism as the backbone for modern/contemporary fantasy in a conversation moderated GeekDad’s Will James.
