The Future is Now description

The man who invented “cyberspace”, William Gibson is one of the most influential writers of our time. From his groundbreaking debut novel Neuromancer, to his latest bestseller Agency, he was the first to imagine a computer-saturated existence, grounded in an all-too-material world, and to anticipate its implications. The philosophies and practicalities of the near futures of his books stem from a deep and fascinated engagement with the present, as embodied in his most famous aphorism: “The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed.”

Please note that William Gibson will join us in the Garden via live streaming from Vancouver, Canada.
