Correction: Joe Quirk reading Exhult is next Saturday 12th 7pm Berkeley
- Hi Futurists,
Blog post with links: http://www.futuresalon.org/2009/12/future-salon-speaker-joe-quirk-reading-in-berkeley-.html
I shouldn't do these posts late on a Friday night. I only did because I thought Joe Quirk's reading of his new book Exult would happen today.
Turns out it is next Saturday the 12th of December. It gives you a whole week to adjust your schedule ;-)
It also gave me the chance to change the word passed to paced, makes so much more sense now. Sorry Joe.
Try to be there, Mark.

You may remember Joe Quirk presenting the very funny Sociobiology Future Salons.
He is out with a super cool new book Exult, trying to answer the question: Is a life fully lived worth an early death? About a hang glider from Berkeley that is experiencing death and near death and everything in between ;-)
Joe used to hang glide, which is one of the reason the book is thick with emotions like the exhilaration of flying and the fear of the crash.
It is a fast paced page turner and keeps you mulling the essential question of how to live your life.
Correction: Next Saturday December 12th you have the chance to hear him read from his book: EXULT.
In his own words: At the new Books Inc. in Berkeley, I'm going to read two sections from my new novel, Exult. It's a philosophical action adventure, so I'll read a harrowing action scene, and the harrowing argument that results.
I'm also going to talk about the promise and challenges of ebooks and
print-on-demand publishing, and I'm going to break the authors'
silence and address the deep problems with traditional publishing.
Only Books Inc. would allow me-- no, encourage me-- to talk about
this. Gotta tip the hat to Calvin Crosby, store manager.
Saturday, December 12, 7 PM.
