Tomorrow night (Thursday, April 11), I Am headlining a free event celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Friends of the San Diego Public Library from 7-9PM: it’s in the Central Library’s Neil Morgan Auditorium (330 Park Blvd., San Diego 92101).
I expect to see you there!
The tl;dr of my address:”libraries as one of the few remnants of a world where individuals were appreciated because of their humanity, not their money, and also the way that works in the present moment of extreme inequality, epistemological incoherence, along with fear of impending collapse.”
The event is free, but seating is limited; the Friends of the San Diego Public Library will provide you with a seat if you pre-order a copy of my brand new book Radicalized from their bookstore.
Subsequently on Sunday, April 14 I am appearing at the LA Times Festival of Books to get a dialogue with John Scalzi, Released by Maryelizabeth Yturralde out of Mysterious Galaxy books.
