      An Evening with Ian McEwan Book Talk

      Join Tattered Cover for a special evening with Booker Prize winning and international bestselling author Ian McEwan for the release of his new book Machines Like Me ($26.95 Nan A. Talese).  In his subversive new novel, McEwan asks whether a machine can understand the human heart--or whether we are the ones who lack understanding. In an alternative 1980s London, Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When he comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first synthetic humans and--with Miranda's help--he designs Adam's personality. The near-perfect human that emerges is beautiful, strong, and clever. It isn't long before a love triangle soon forms, and these three beings confront a profound moral dilemma.  A limited number of tickets are available now through Eventbrite. **Important Event and Ticket Information** -- Tickets are $29.50 (plus tax and convenience fee) and include a pre-signed copy of Machines Like Me. -- Presentation begins at 7:00 pm. --There will NOT be a signing at the event – each ticket includes a pre-signed copy of Machines Like Me. -- Check in begins at 5:00 pm. -- Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. -- The end time of this event is an estimate. -- Event tickets are available online ONLY, through Eventbrite.
