IN THE AFTERLIFE
“In the afterlife you may find that God is the size of a microbe and unaware of your existence; or you may find the afterlife contains only people whom you remember. In some afterlives you may be split into all your different ages, or forced to live with annoying versions of yourself that represent what you could have been.” Lauded by fans – including Brian Eno, Philip Pullman and Geoff Dyer – for its genius and originality, Sum is a set of funny, wistful and unsettling short tales concerned with what’s next, written by the polymath American neuroscientist David Eagleman. He is joined by special guests Courtney Sina Meredith (NZ) Neal Stephenson (US) and Robert Webb (UK) for readings from the collection interspersed with mystically-inspired music from one of the acclaimed Blackbird Ensemble.
Doors open at 8pm after previous session concludes.
Free entry; cash bar.
