Please join us for our discussion of The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. Described as "bio-punk science fiction," and set in 23rd-century Thailand, biotechnology companies dominate and control food production, and the natural genetic seed stock of the world's plants is almost entire sterile. What happens when biotechnology turns to bioterrorism? Can the planet survive?
This book has won multiple awards, including the 2009 Nebula and 2010 Hugo, among others.
