Event Preview: Cory Doctorow

Join us for a discussion of tech blogger Cory Doctorow's latest young adult story of technological activism!

In the near future, online piracy is being cracked down on more than ever.  That's bad news for Trent, whose favorite pastime is re-editing films he downloads.  He thinks he'll outsmart law enforcement forever, until he's caught, and his entire family loses their internet for a year.  With his life in ruins, Trent runs away to London, where he connects with a group of artist-activists who are campaigning against a new law that would mean even more restrictions.  Can the get back control of the government from the media corporations, or will everyone soon be an internet felon?

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2, at St. Louis County Library--Headquarters (1640 S. Lindbergh, 63131) for a discussion and signing of Pirate Cinema with Cory Doctorow!  If you can't make it to the event, you can still get a signed and personalized copy of the book by calling the store at 314-367-6731, ext. 1.
