Cory Doctorow/Friends 40th Lecture Presented By The Friends Of The San Diego Public Library

Join the Friends of the San Diego Public Library as they celebrate 40 years of advocacy and support of your library with international best-selling science fiction author, blogger and journalist Cory Doctorow ("Little Brother", "Radicalized"). Doctorow, a lifelong supporter of libraries, digital rights, and the Creative Commons, will discuss- in honor of the Friends and National Library Week's 2019 theme Libraries = Stronger Communities- libraries as the last stand of a society where people are valued because of their humanity, not their money, and how that works in the current moment of extreme inequality, epistemological incoherence, and fear of imminent collapse.

Following the lecture there will be a book signing. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

To ensure a reserved seat simply pre-order a copy of Mr. Doctorow’s "Radicalized" from the Library Shop here. All proceeds support the San Diego Public Library System.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
