Step into "The Future" with Naomi Alderman In Ocean County Library

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- As power-hungry tech titans unleash a bid for total global control, a small band of friends hatch a plot that will save – or destroy – the world. That’s the gist of award winning novelist Naomi Alderman’s new thriller The Future, which she’ll discuss in her Ocean County Library’s Virtual Author Talk on Thursday, November 30, 2023 at 3:00pm.

The Future unfolds on opposite sides of the planet. In the U.S., Martha Einkorn works for a social media megalomaniac whose cohorts preach technology gospel to the masses while turning the world into their pleasure palace. In Singapore, survivalist Lai Zhen seems cornered by an assassin until a mysterious app on her phone shows the way to safety. The collision of their race-against-time worlds foretells the fate of ours.

Alderman’s gripping sci-fi novels The Future, The Power, and Disobedience are available in print, audiobook and eBook versions at the Ocean County Library. The London, England native co-created the mobile fitness game “Zombies, Run!” and presents science programs on BBC Radio 4.
