Writers LIVE @ CLP - Main: Thomas Sweterlitsch

Thursday, August 7, 2014  
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Pittsburgh writer Thomas Sweterlitsch visits Writers LIVE with his gritty debut novel Tomorrow and Tomorrow, a Blade Runner-meets-Google Glass dystopian mystery. The novel, set 10 years after Pittsburgh was destroyed in a terrible accident, focuses on the secrets of the Archive, a digital recreation of the Steel City that allows for interaction with lost people and places. Grieving survivor John Dominic Blaxton is obsessed with the Archive and unintentionally finds glitches in the code, only to reveal a horrific secret. Stewart O’Nan says “Sweterlitsch's debut is a wild mashup of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick and William S. Burroughs, and, like their work, utterly visionary.”

A book signing follows the program with copies of Tomorrow and Tomorrow available from Mystery Lovers Bookshop.

Registration is required. Please visit the link below for FREE tickets.

Writers LIVE @ CLP – Main is a collaboration between Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures.
