Friend of ibiblio Cory Doctorow will discuss is latest young adult novel, Homeland, at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill on February 16th at 2pm.
Homeland, like its precursor Little Brother, follows young activist Marcus Yallow as he uses technology to lead a movement against a tyrannical security state. Doctorow writes often about privacy, copyright, and activism. His novels encourage young people to get involved in making the world a better place.
Here’s Doctorow talking to Giving a talk at the UNC campus in 2007. There are more videos of the talk for download at terasaur.
Mark your calendars for some more great speakers coming this spring:

We’ll keep you posted…
