Synchromy and Tuesdays @ Monkspace present “say I am not far enough”, a night of readings, art, and music inspired by the life and work of late American novelist Ursula K. Le Guin. Born in Berkeley, California in 1929, Le Guin’s unique voice broke barriers in the realms of science fiction and fantasy in the 1960s and 70s, lending a feminist slant and refreshing approach to genres dominated by macho male protagonists and space battles.
