Digital Programs
Zoom
Premieres Wednesday, September 2 6:30 pm

Ages 21 & Up: Grab your favorite beverage and join a virtual discussion of Fall; or Dodge in Hell by Neal Stephenson. In Stephenson's latest novel, entrepreneur Richard Forthrast has a comfortable life until a routine medical procedure leaves him brain-dead and on life support. His brain is scanned and uploaded to cloud storage in hopes that he can eventually be revived-only for it to be turned on years later when new technology disrupts death and creates a digital afterlife.
