Los Angeles, CA: Skylight Books

  • Skylight Books 1818 North Vermont Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90027 United States (map)

This is going to be a cool event, because I’m joined at the legendary Skylight Books by Sean Carroll, the legendary Cal Tech cosmologist who writes about the origins of spacetime and the universe and small topics like that (his latest is Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime). He was the person I called when I wanted to include time machines in my novel, and I converted almost all of his advice into the mechanics of time travel in the world of The Future of Another Timeline. I’ll do a short reading and then Sean and I will talk about why time travel is such a great literary device—even if it’s not terribly good science. You can RSVP via Eventbrite (event is free).
