Sherwood Nation selected for Silicon Valley Reads 2016

I am really excited to reveal this bit of news that I’ve been holding onto. Sherwood Nation will be Silicon Valley’s 2016 community reads book, along with Memory of Water by Emmi Itäranta. Hooray!

In all, I’ll be visiting the Silicon Valley (San Jose, Cupertino, Mountain View, Palo Alto, etc!) for a total of between twelve and twenty events in 2016. The first will be the Silicon Valley Reads kick-off on January 26th. Here is info on the kick-off.

iu-2There is something so weirdly ironic about posting this news from here, deep in the Oregon desert  at a two week writing residency where internet is as scarce as water. I’m researching a book about archaeology, in which the height of technology is the Clovis point.  And a fearsome, game-changing technology it was, thirteen thousand years ago. I also find it interesting that after a career in tech, my first visit to the Silicon Valley will be for literature, to talk about a book that, because of the collapse, is essentially devoid of digital technology.

At any rate, I can’t wait, and I look forward to talking about the book with all those new readers.
