"In Doctorow’s chilling world, technological marvels turn on their users on a dime: the indispensable cellphone annihilates privacy, the self-driving car goes berserk and kills, and the internet is the world’s most powerful surveillance tool." —Publishers Weekly

Join us for New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow and his latest dystopian cyberthriller, Attack Surface, in which high stakes and real-world paranoia keep the pages turning. In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, Masha Maximow made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene. But Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable. Cory Doctorow reads from and discusses Attack Surface with San Francisco novelist Richard Kadrey, acclaimed author of the Sandman Slim series. FREE, $5-10 suggested donation

Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited.
Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
