In a world that’s chock-full of apocalyptic and tragic hypotheses about how the human race will come to its inevitable end, Annalee Newitz will be discussing her latest book, Scatter, Adapt and Remember: How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction which should maybe inspire some hope. The editor of science fiction and futurism blog io9 uses her “speculative and hopeful work of popular science” to reminisce about the many trials and tribulations our race has endured. There she will offer pragmatic advice on how we can lead better lives in our world.
