Please join the Atlantic Council on Thursday, October 6 at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate the publication of Atlantic Council Senior Fellow Jamie Metzl’s new novel, Eternal Sonata: A Thriller of the Near Future.
Eternal Sonata imagines a future global struggle to control the science of extreme human life extension and raises fundamental questions about our millennial quest for immortality and what we might be willing to do to attain it. Futurist Ray Kurzweil calls Eternal Sonata "a brilliant exploration of the many challenges and opportunities our species will face as the exponential growth of real-world technology moves us toward immortality."
Richard Clarke will explore the national security implications of the genetics revolution and other transformative technologies in conversation with Jamie.
This event is co-hosted with: Fredrick Barton, Rebecca Bond, Benjamin Brown, Evelyn Farkas, Daniel Feldman, Anthony Garrett, Chandrani Ghosh, Melissa Goldstein, Kathryn Lunney, Kristin Rechberger, Kathleen Reen, and Rakhi Varma.
Jamie Metzl will be available to sign copies of Eternal Sonata.
