Widely acclaimed for his works of speculative fiction and credited with establishing cyberpunk, a sub-genre of science fiction that defined a generation of popular media and art, William Gibson is a tour de force of creative and literary talent. Agency, the newest novel from this visionary author, turns the lens of the future to our precarious present, offering a sweeping reimagining of an alternative, exhilarating political world.

In discussion with Vancouver’s own indomitable and eloquent Marsha Lederman, Western Arts Correspondent for The Globe and Mail, this is an event that will appeal to fiction lovers and political philosophers alike.
