Cory Doctorow Signing
Friday 26th May 13:00 - 14:00 at Birmingham
The wonderful Cory Doctorow will be joining us in store to sign copies of his brand new novel, Walkaway.
Hubert, Seth and Natalie are way too old to be at a Communist party. But in a world wrecked by climate change, in a society owned by the ultra-rich, in a city hollowed out by industrial flight, they have nowhere else to be and nothing better to do.
But there is another way. After all, now that anyone can design and print the basic necessities of life – food, clothing, shelter – from a computer, there is little reason to toil within the system.
So, like thousands of others in the mid-21st century, the three of them turn their back on the world of rules, jobs, the morning
commute and … walkaway.
Cory Doctorow is a co-editor of Boing Boing and a columnist for the Guardian, Publishers Weekly, and Locus. His award-winning novel Little Brother was a New York Times bestseller. Born and raised in Canada, he lives in Los Angeles.
