Join us in the virtual readings gallery for what is sure to be a fascinating conversation between these two celebrated local authors! 


In his pathbreaking new book, Analogia: The Emergence of Technology Beyond Programmable Control, technology historian George Dyson combines vivid historical storytelling with his own personal narrative to offer a startling look back at the analog age and life before the digital revolution—and an unsettling vision of what comes next.

George Dyson, a dual citizen of the United States and Canada, is an independent historian of technology whose subjects have included the development (and redevelopment) of the Aleut kayak (Baidarka, 1986), the evolution of artificial intelligence (Darwin Among the Machines, 1997), a path not taken into space (Project Orion, 2002), and the transition from numbers that mean things to numbers that do things in the aftermath of World War II (Turing’s Cathedral, 2012). Dyson lives in Bellingham.

Clyde Ford was born in New York City. He’s the author of thirteen works of fiction and non-fiction including, most recently, Think Black: A Memoir. He's also  apsychotherapist, an accomplished mythologist, and a sought-after public speaker. In 2006, Ford received the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Award in African American fiction.
