Chapter One Stage
The world and our nation are facing a time of deep divisions and unprecedented ethical concerns while simultaneously reaping the benefits of extreme technological innovations. How do we protect our nation while maintaining our humanity in a world that seems less and less humane? How do we mine the benefits of technology without destroying the world in which we live? These are the questions that Dave Edlund boldly addresses in his 'Peter Savage' novels, tackling hot-button issues such as energy independence, genetic manipulation, bioweapons, and redrawing borders in the name of national security. Dave Edlund will talk about how his expertise as a scientist influences his writing and how he seeks to address global issues through his critically-acclaimed 'Peter Savage' thriller series. Dave will read from his novels and take questions from the audience as he shows the power of fiction to tackle critical issues that might otherwise seem insurmountable.
