Tthree-time Prometheus Award winner, Cory Doctorow, author of young adult novels including Homeland and Pirate Cinema, returns to fiction for adults with a dystopian epic. In a world of rampant consumerism, a band of renegades known as the Walkaways braves ravaged nature and the industrial wastelands to create another kind of life. Doctorow, co-editor of the Boing Boing blog and a columnist for the Guardian, vividly evokes a new kind of wilderness where the essentials—food, clothing, shelter—can be printed out from any computer, but where humans are still vulnerable to predators. Or are they? When the Walkaways discover a way to outwit death, they have the one thing their old world couldn’t buy and now vows to steal.

Doctorow will be in conversation with Amie Stepanovich, the U.S. Policy Manager for Access Now, an advocacy group dedicated to an open and free Internet.

This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
