Anyone who has stopped by before knows I'm a big fan of N.K. Jemisin's fiction (trust me, it's awesome, give it a try!) but she's an awesome human, too, and her guest of honor speech is just another illustration of that awesomeness. Give it a read and be inspired!
Sadly, there are people in this world who are not awesome (or even just average). Jemisin herself highlighted this cogent response to the vile behavior of certain individuals. Read it and be inspired to SPEAK UP!
