Scheduled events:
Facing an Uncertain Future: Power & Intrigue
In dystopian worlds of the future, power and intrigue often combine to create uncertain futures. Paolo Bacigalupi's world is rising seas and bio-engineered super soldiers in his Ship Breaker trilogy. Adrianne Finlay's world consists of clones where the last human being is considered a fossil in "Your One and Only." Veronica Roth's new world in "Carve the Mark" is set in a system of nation-planets where each person's current gift can cause harm and pain as well as good. Assistive listening devices available.
