Malka Older in Conversation with Fran Wilde!

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome Prometheus Award-winning author Malka Older to our virtual event space! She'll be joined in conversation with Fran Wilde to celebrate her newest book release, The Mimicking of Known Successes on Tuesday, March 7th at 12pmMT. The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.


On a remote, gas-wreathed outpost of a human colony on Jupiter, a man goes missing. The enigmatic Investigator Mossa follows his trail to Valdegeld, home to the colony’s erudite university—and Mossa’s former girlfriend and a scholar of Earth’s pre-collapse ecosystems. Pleiti has dedicated her research and her career to aiding the larger effort towards a possible return to Earth. When Mossa unexpectedly arrives and requests Pleiti’s assistance in her latest investigation, the two of them embark on a twisting path in which the future of life on Earth is at stake—and, perhaps, their futures, together.
