Bestselling author Neal Stephenson is known for delivering novels with poignant and incisive reflections on our present and future. Now the acclaimed novelist joins us for a Town Hall conversation about his latest book Fall; or, Dodge in Hell.

The story follows billionaire magnate Richard “Dodge” Forthrast who is left suddenly braindead after a mishap during a routine medical procedure. Per his will, Dodge’s brain is scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud until it can eventually be revived. When Dodge’s digital brain is reactivated, the accomplishment shatters the human understanding of death and leads to the creation of an eternal digital afterlife. But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem.

Stephenson took the stage to discuss this grand drama of analog and digital, raising profound existential questions and touching on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Join Stephenson for a deep dive into his latest mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.

Neal Stephenson is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Reamde, Anathem, The System of the World, The Confusion, Quicksilver, Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac, and the groundbreaking nonfiction work In the Beginning . . . Was the Command Line.

Recorded live at The Great Hall by Town Hall Seattle on June 3, 2019.
