An Evening with Jamie Metzl

    • We're excited to welcome author, technology futurist, and geopolitical expert Jamie Metzl to Fort Collins! We invite you to join us in celebrating the release of his latest book Hacking Darwin: Genetic Engineering and the Future of Humanity. The event will take place on Thursday, May 2nd at 7:00pm at the Fort Collins Hilton. Old Firehouse Books is proud to partner with the CSU Morgan Library and Poudre River Public Library District to make this event possible.

      Metzl’s Hacking Darwin is a groundbreaking exploration of the many ways genetic-engineering is shaking the core foundations of our lives – sex, war, love, and death. At the dawn of the genetics revolution, our DNA is becoming as readable, writable, and hackable as our information technology. But as humanity starts retooling our own genetic code, the choices we make today will be the difference between realizing breathtaking advances in humanity’s well-being and descending into a dangerous and potentially deadly genetic arms race.

      We hope you’ll join us for this event!
