Too Like The Lighting by Ada Palmer.

The winner of the 2017 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer joins our SciFi club to discuss her trilogy, called “a venture into a human future of extraordinary originality where she mixes “Enlightenment-era philosophy with traditional science fiction speculation to bring to life the year 2454, not a perfect future, but a utopian one, threatened by cultural upheaval.” Cory Doctorow says, “More intricate, more plausible, more significant than any debut I can recall…If you read a debut novel this year, make it Too Like the Lightning.” And Romantic Times makes Too Like the Lightning a Top Pick: “Astonishingly dense, accomplished and well-realized, with a future that feels real in both its strangeness and its familiarity.”

Sci-Friday members to attend signing and talk with Palmer about first book.
