Novel Nights: Exhalation by Ted Chiang

Ted Chiang writes what Joyce Carol Oates in the New Yorker called “literary-humanist science fiction.” In his acclaimed new collection of stories, Exhalation, Chiang takes on bioethics, alternate realities, free will and determinism, time travel, robots, AI, and so much more.

Join us at this special Novel Nights event to discuss the collection with the author himself.

Special Guest: Ted Chiang

Part book club, part celebration: a novel approach to the literary salon.

We write because we were readers first—and our love of reading great literature is what sustains us through long, lonely hours at the writing desk.

But books don’t exist only in the solitude of our minds; they come alive in the conversations we have about them.

At Novel Nights, you’ll delve into the depths of books new and old in the company of fellow book-lovers and friends—all while supporting Hugo House. To see a full list of all the Novel Nights events, click here.
