Annalee Newitz and "The Future of Another Timeline"

Annalee Newitz will talk about her latest book, The Future of Another Timeline. The Raven will have copies of her book for sale, and a book signing will follow her talk.

Because this event is on Rosh Hashanah, we will have an audio recording for those who are observing the holiday.

More about THE FUTURE OF ANOTHER TIMELINE:

In a modern-day United States just a step away from our own, time travel is possible – in fact, it has existed for as long as humanity itself. Jumping into the past is simple, and scientists say that altering the timeline is almost impossible. But Tess, an idealistic geology professor, has figured out how to use time travel to try to undo a horrible injustice in the past whose effects are still being felt in her own time. Meanwhile, in 1992, teenage riot grrl Beth’s ordinary life is about to become a tangle of toxic friendship and murder. And across the timeline, a secret war is brewing as a group of men attempt to destroy time travel. If they succeed, only a small elite will have the power to shape past, present, and future. Tess and Beth are part of this hidden war that stretches back millions of years. But with the help of unlikely allies from times past and times yet to come, they may be able to save each other—and build a different future.
