**SOLD OUT** Neal Stephenson and Cory Doctorow with Ed Finn: Reigniting Society’s Ambition with Science Fiction
Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $5.
Advance tickets for this event have been sold out. A limited number of stand-by tickets will be available at the door starting at 7:15 pm. Bestselling science fiction author Stephenson laments our society’s loss of a key superpower — the ability to “Get Big Stuff Done.” To combat this, Project Hieroglyph brings together writers, artists, scientists, and new technologies in an effort to “reignite the iconic and optimistic visions” of the past. Doctorow and Stephenson will discuss the project, the collection of anthologies, and how to change the course of society’s ambition.
