      EVENT DETAILS
      Film Professor Sarah Kozloff reads from her new four-volume fantasy series, The Nine Realms

      Sarah Kozloff will be reading from her new four-volume fantasy series, The Nine Realms. Kozloff has taught film history at Vassar since 1987 and is the author of several books on film, including Invisible Storytellers: Voice-Over Narration in American Fiction Film (1988) and Overhearing Film Dialogue (2000). Written in response to the lack of female characters in fantasy series such as The Lord of the Rings, Kozloff’s The Nine Realms takes a queen for its protagonist and sets her on a journey to claim her rightful throne. The series has been praised as an “ambitious saga of magic, intrigue, and heroism” (Booklist) and as “literary . . .  and epic in scope” (Publishers Journal). The first book in the series, A Queen in Hiding, was released on January 21, 2020, and the remaining volumes will appear in print this spring.
