WEEK OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY / AUTHOR READING IN CZECH CENTRE PRAGUE
Author reading within the Week of Science and Technology with the heading "Where no one has gone before: When science meets science fiction" will take place in the Czech Centre in Prague on November 2, 2016 from 5 pm. In Czech only.
WHERE NO ONE HAS GONE BEFORE: WHEN SCIENCE MEETS SCIENCE FICTION
Biologist and science fiction writer Julie Nováková will read an extract from her anthology Terra nullius and she will begin discussions about where science and its fictional counterpart sci-fi meet. Is the colonization of Mars or the moon more science fiction than reality? And what can sci-fi tell us about the change in humanity itself?
Julie Novakova was born in 1991 in Prague. She writes novels and stories. She studies Biology at the Faculty of Science at Charles University. She has published seven novels and more than thirty stories in magazines and anthologies. This year she published an edition of Evropská space opera science-fiction trilogy Blíženci: Prstenec prozření, Elysium and Hvězdoměnci, and in addition the anthology Terra nullius which is full of extraordinary stories by local authors. As a member the instructor team, she is involved in the project Writing Workshop, where she participates in teaching creative writing in Czech and English.
Julie Novakova won the Prize of Czech Centres in the international competition FameLab 2016 in the Czech Republic. The jury was pleased with a performance "True Masters of Manipulation". This award brings her annual cooperation with Czech centers abroad to popularize science.
