Headed into the Abyss: The Story of Our Time, and the Future We'll Face with Brian T. Watson
Join Brian T. Watson for a presentation and discussion of his recent book, "Headed Into the Abyss: The Story of Our Time, and the Future We'll Face." The book describes the state of society today, the many challenges we face, and assesses whether or not we are likely to meaningfully address these problems. Examining the most important forces at play today -- including capitalism, technology, politics, the internet and social media, human nature, the environment, and others -- Watson describes the immense difficulties we face in trying to reform or even control these forces. This is a comprehensive, big-picture, dot-connecting analysis of society. Book sale and signing to follow.
Brian T. Watson is an architect and cultural critic. For twenty-three years he has been a regular, current-affairs columnist with the Salem News in Salem, Massachusetts focused primarily on current events and the forces that were and are shaping societies both here and abroad.
