How To Put The Science In Science Fiction
Join the #SciFriBookClub in conversation with Blake Crouch about his new book, UPGRADE, the writing process, and his new perspective on science fiction. We’ll be joined by Dr. Michael Wiles, Senior Director, Emeritus of Technology Evaluation and Development at The Jackson Laboratory, who served as science consultant for UPGRADE. “What’s on the horizon is much more terrifying than what you’re imagining,” said Crouch of Wiles’ advice — hear from him about the writer/science expert relationship and working dynamic, and his advice to scientists who want to get involved in this work.
The #SciFriBookClub is reading UPGRADE by Blake Crouch this August! We’ve got discussion questions, community meetings, and even live events coming up. With his newest book, Crouch brings us to a world where humanity’s only hope for a future may only lie in engineering our own evolution—all the while reminding us this future may not be as far off as we once believed.
