Hugo Literary Series 2021: Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse w/ Kristen Millares Young!

June 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm PDT

After a year of isolation and infection, of “fake news” and challenges to democracy, of wildfires and superstorms, of violence and racial injustice, one question keeps coming to mind: If these aren’t apocalyptic times, then what are?

For this season’s Hugo Literary Series, we’re going all in on Apocalypse. Over four nights this spring, twelve writers and four musicians will explore all things calamitous, presenting new work themed on, what else, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Conquest, War, Famine, and Death. So embrace your inner mayhem and snag a ticket to the hottest—and most disastrous—show in town.


Famine: Ottessa Moshfegh, Leni Zumas, Laura Da’, and Sad13
February 12, 2021  |  6 pm PST

Death: Rebecca Makkai, Layli Long Soldier, Lucy Tan, and PC Muñoz
April 2, 2021  |  6 pm PST

Conquest: Jeff VanderMeer, Lacy M. Johnson, Juan Carlos Reyes, and Eva Walker (of the Black Tones)
May 7, 2021  |  6 pm PST
