Thursday, Aug. 20

Science fiction has the power to remind us of how small humans are against the backdrop of the cosmos. Stories about androids, cloning and human augmentation challenge our day-to-day attitudes toward technology. At sci-fi's forefront is Hugo Award-winning author John Scalzi, whose Old Man's War novel series—a tale of augmented soldiers protecting human colonists against a slew of alien races—has gained worldwide recognition for its originality and depth. He'll be at the Boise Public Library Hayes Auditorium Thursday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m. to discuss his latest work, The End of All Things, the latest installment in the Old Man's War series , which covers a series of alien attacks against Earth and its colonies.
