Cory Doctorow, ʺWalkawayʺ in conversation with Mary Robinette Kowal
“Walkaway” by writer, activist, journalist and blogger Cory Doctorow is his first novel for adults in eight years and draws from his vast curiosity and knowledge of pop culture, intellectual property, technology and philosophy. Doctorow, the co-editor of Boing Boing (boing-boing.net), is also the author of nonfiction (“Information Doesn’t Want to Be Free”) and books for young adults (“Little Brother”). Drawing on thriller and science-fiction genres, Doctorow grounds “Walkaway” in the realities of today to deliver not a descent into dystopia, but rather a battle for utopia. He will be joined in conversation by three-time Hugo Award-winner Mary Robinette Kowal, author of such historical fantasy novels as “Ghost Talkers” and “The Glamourist Histories” series.
