The Worlds of Science Fiction and Fantasy

Airs Monday, October 17th at 7pm on WVIA TV

Pennsylvania has long been home to science fiction and fantasy writers and artists. For example, the Milford Science Fiction Writers Conference originated in Milford, PA, in 1956 and continues annually with a lasting effect on sci-fi writing. Keystone Edition: Arts will ask what inspires artists to create worlds different from ours, why these genres remain popular and look for correlations between science fiction, fantasy, and "real" life.
