Writers at Wright presents Neal Stephenson at Unity Temple

Event date: 

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 - 7:00pm

Join us for an evening with Neal Stepheson. We will be celebrating the publication of his new book, Reamde.

“Stephenson has a once-in-a-generation gift: he makes complex ideas clear, and he makes them funny, heartbreaking, and thrilling.”
—Time

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Neal Stephenson is continually rocking the literary world with his brazen and brilliant fictional creations—whether he’s reimagining the past (The Baroque Cycle), inventing the future (Snow Crash), or both (Cryptonomicon). With Reamde, this visionary author whose mind-stretching fiction has been enthusiastically compared to the work of Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo, Kurt Vonnegut, and David Foster Wallace—not to mention William Gibson and Michael Crichton—once again blazes new ground with a high-stakes thriller that will enthrall his loyal audience, science and science fiction, and espionage fiction fans equally. The breathtaking tale of a wealthy tech entrepreneur caught in the very real crossfire of his own online fantasy war game, Reamde is a new high—and a new world—for the remarkable Neal Stephenson.

Neal Stephenson is the author of the three-volume historical epic The Baroque Cycle [Quicksilver (Clarke Award, 2004), The Confusion, and The System of the World (Prometheus Award, 2005)] and the novels Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age (Hugo Award, 1996), Snow Crash (named one of Time Magazine's all-time best English-language novels), Zodiac, and Anathem.

 

This will be a ticketed event. ADMISSION $10. Each ticket can be redeemed for $10 off the cover price of Reamde on the night of the event.

10% of all book sales at this event will be donated to The Unity Temple Restoration Foundation.

Writers at Wright is a partnership between The Book Table, Friends of the Oak Park Public Library, Midwest Media and The Unity Temple Restoration Foundation dedicated to bringing the finest authors to speak at Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece, Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL.
