Free showing of "The Man in the High Castle," followed by a panel discussion

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

On Thursday, December 3, at the Newseum, in Washington, DC, I will be participating in a discussion panel following a free showing of the first two episodes of the new TV series "The Man in the High Castle," based on Philip K. Dick's famous alternate history novel of the same name.

The reception begins at 6:15 PM, and the show starts at 7:30. It will be followed by a panel discussion, in which I will participate along with Bob Cusack, editor in chief of The Hill, Kevin S. Bankston, Director of New America's Open Technology Institute, Morgan Wandell, Head of Drama at Amazon (which produced the show). The address is The Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theatre, 555 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington DC.

Although the event is free, space is limited. If you want to come, please RSVP to the following e-mail address: highcastlersvp@gpg.com. Please put "Volokh" in the subject heading of your e-mail, so that the organizers will know you found out about the event through the Volokh Conspiracy.

I have previously written a number of book chapters, articles, and blog posts, about the politics of fantasy and science fiction literature. I very much look forward to discussing this interesting new series, based on a classic in the field.

I hope to see you there!
