When M. T. Anderson's novel Feed was published ten years ago, the notion of being constantly connected to the Internet seemed far-fetched. Now? Not so much. Anderson will lead a discussion with three authors whose books are set in the near future: Rachel Cohn, whose Beta kicks off a new series about cloning; Cory Doctorow, whose Pirate Cinema takes on notions of intellectual property; and Gabrielle Zevin, whose Because It Is My Blood imagines a world where chocolate is illegal and organized crime presides over a world in shambles. We'll try to wrap our heads around the future in this lively session. Sponsored by Simmons College.
