HEY- if you are in the Triangle area, I will be appearing at Flyleaf Books this Friday night! Cory Doctorow will be coming through on his book tour for his new book Walkaway, and I am joining him for a conversation about the book. I hope to see you there!
From Flyleaf Books:
Fri 5/5, 7pm – 8pm
Cory Doctorow discusses his new novel Walkaway in conversation with Mur Lafferty. Walkaway is Cory Doctorow’s first adult novel in eight years: an epic tale of revolution, love, post-scarcity, and the end of death.
Hubert Vernon Rudolph Clayton Irving Wilson Alva Anton Jeff Harley Timothy Curtis Cleveland Cecil Ollie Edmund Eli Wiley Marvin Ellis Espinoza—known to his friends as Hubert, Etc—was too old to be at that Communist party.
But after watching the breakdown of modern society, he really has no where left to be—except amongst the dregs of disaffected youth who party all night and heap scorn on the sheep they see on the morning commute. After falling in with Natalie, an ultra-rich heiress trying to escape the clutches of her repressive father, the two decide to give up fully on formal society—and walk away.
After all, now that anyone can design and print the basic necessities of life—food, clothing, shelter—from a computer, there seems to be little reason to toil within the system.
