What if the future is as novelist Margaret Atwood imagines it will be? In the book "The Year of the Flood," humankind has killed off many species of animals; the very rich live hidden away from the rest of society, who scrabble like animals to survive; technology has created many new things, but some of them carry hidden dangers that could doom us all...and worst of all, a plague has killed off most human beings. What can we do to keep such a future from happening? Is there anyone in Atwood's MaddAdam series who points a way to a better tomorrow? Why are human beings so troubled by evolution? These questions and many more will be considered by your favorite spiritual book club's hosts, Lori and Alice. Don't miss our conversation!
