I'll be talking about SF and foresight this Saturday
... at the Metro reference library here in Toronto, starting at 7:00 pm.
Here's the full itinerary from the TPL website, along with a little teaser on my next event, coming up on March 24, that you might want to participate in:
Science Fiction and Foresight: Is it true that science fiction is about predicting the future? Karl Schroeder discusses when science fiction and foresight are the same and when they are different.
Saturday, March 6, 7-8:15 pm
Toronto Reference Library
Live Online Chat
Chat online with Karl Schroeder - a Book Buzz event.
Wednesday, March 24, 7-8 pm
So come on down on Saturday for the talk! It's supposed to be a glorious spring-like day, so why not visit the library then take a stroll down Yonge?
