Welcome to the Universe(s) with Katie Prince, Emet North

Join us for a genre-bending launch party for two debut authors with their sights set on the universe. Poet Katie Prince’s Tell This to the Universe and novelist Emet North’s In Universes both use the multiverse as a way to explore desire, grief, and the search for belonging. The authors will read briefly from their books and then talk together about the joys and dangers of blending physics and art. If you’ve ever stayed up at night contemplating alternate lives, this might be the event for you. Come grab a drink, eat a cupcake, and ask all the burning multiverse questions you’ve had since watching Everything Everywhere All At Once.*

*Answers not guaranteed to be correct since neither author is actually a physicist.

Books, provided by Elliott Bay Book Company, will be available for purchase and signing after the event.

The House bar will be open to serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Emet North

Emet North has lived in a dozen states over the past decade and has no fixed residence, though they feel most at home in the mountains. In previous lives, they worked in an observational cosmology lab on a grant from NASA, taught snowboarding in Montana, researched Lie algebras, led wine tastings, waited tables, trained horses, and wrote a thesis on the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. They translate from Spanish to English with a particular focus on queer and trans voices and are always looking for new projects.
