"Oryx and Crake" is a book of speculative fiction...so what better to do than speculate! Lori and Alice will discuss the value of the arts to humankind, the inevitability of spirituality, and whether or not we are wise enough to know when we've gone too far — can humanity pull itself back before ecological disaster destroys us? Should there be moral limits put on scientific achievement? Don't miss the discussion!
