Kij Johnson, a lecturer in the English department at Kansas University, will talk and sign copies of her novel "The Fox Woman" from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Oread Books at the Kansas Union.
Johnson is a former managing editor for fantasy gaming publisher Wizards of the Coast and researcher for the Microsoft Corp. She has completed two novels set in Japan and is at work on a third. Her first novel, "The Fox Woman," involves a fox who became a woman and was described in a starred review in Publisher's Weekly as "steeped in historical detail."
Johnson's appearance is part of Oread Books' ongoing series of meet-the-author events featuring campus and community authors. The authors' titles will be available for signing.
