Theology nerds (who are also generally nerds) come to Toronto!

I had a great time last year at Doxacon DC, a day of talks, revelry, and occasional cosplay for people who are deeply interested in both Christianity and fantasy/science fiction. So I’m thrilled to tell you that I’ll be the keynote speaker this fall for Doxacon Toronto (and that my now-fiancé, then-husband will be giving a talk on “Authority and the Marvel Cinematic Universe” there, too).

I’ll be speaking on Chesterton, Lewis and Card on Worldbuilding and Our Tolerance of Mystery

I’ll be looking at the advice these f/sf authors give about inviting a reader into a world (while neither overloading them with exposition or leaving them in the dark) and seeing what their instructions suggest about how we handle mystery in our own world (and our corresponding relationship with a Divine Author).

Tickets for Doxacon are on sale now, so definitely give your Canadian friends a heads up, and let me know in the comments if you might be coming up north to revel in God and geekery.
