HIEROGLYPH Book Reading & Signing

January 22, 2015 @ 6:30 pm

Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future

Join Kathryn Cramer, editor of the anthology Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future, and contributor James Cambias on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 6:30 pm for a reading and signing of the book at Phoenix Books Burlington. This event is free and open to all.

This remarkable anthology unites twenty of today’s leading thinkers, writers, and visionaries—among them Cory Doctorow, Gregory Benford, Elizabeth Bear, Bruce Sterling, and Neal Stephenson—to contribute works of “techno-optimism” that challenge us to dream and do Big Stuff . Engaging, mind-bending, provocative, and imaginative, Hieroglyph offers a forward-thinking approach to the intersection of art and technology that has the power to change our world.
