ADEADLYWANDERING Matt Richtel TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24 | 7:30 PM LAXSON AUDITORIUM M att Richtel is a novelist, cartoonist, and Pulitzer Prize- winning reporter for the New York Times and based in San Francisco. He writes about technology, its impact on society, and how it changes the way we work, play, and relate to each other. A Deadly Wandering is a true story in which a fatal, mysterious car wreck provides a landmark investigation into what technology is doing to our brains. “Keen and elegantly raw—like a tooth- crackingly crisp photograph that bleeds at the edge—[the] story surrounding this disaster is not just a morality tale about texting and driving, but also a probe sent into the world of technology, examining the way it is outstripping our capability to keep up with it, and how we as a culture are feeding bullets into the techno-gun and playing with it.” —Christian Science Monitor Review $20 ADULT | $18 SENIOR FREE YOUTH | FREE CHICO STATE STUDENT Book in Common Wherewegatherauthors,artists,scientists,scholarsandcreatorsto tossaroundideasthatintersectoursocietyandourhumanity.
