Author Event - Aurora with Kim Stanley Robinson
Avid Reader "Active", Friday, July 17 at 7:30pm
The Avid Reader is happy to present local author Kim Stanley Robinson for the launch of his newest science-fiction novel, Aurora on July 17th from 7:30pm to 8:30pm.

A major new novel from one of science fiction's most powerful voices, Aurora tells the incredible story of our first voyage beyond the solar system.

Freya and her parents live aboard a starship that has traveled for generations and will soon reach Tau Ceti, a star about 12 light years from Earth’s solar system. Freya’s mother, Devi, is the de facto chief engineer, struggling to keep the ship’s environment balanced until they reach a new world and, they hope, survive on it. But ecologies are delicate, resources are limited, and the laws of physics are immutable.

Over the course of Freya’s life, her community faces genuinely surprising struggles for survival, leading Freya to wonder whether it is too late to reconsider a question initially decided millions of miles away and centuries ago: should this ship have been launched in the first place?
