Version Zero: David Yoon’s Takedown of the Digital World
How can we save ourselves from the perils of the virtual world? What would happen if someone rebooted the internet? In his first adult novel, bestselling YA romcom author David Yoon draws on his decades in the tech industry to satirise big tech, internet culture and our own social media consumption. The result is Version Zero, “an addictive, brain-hacking exploration of the tech-run world we live in, and a rollercoaster so fast it will blow your hair off.” (Sylvain Neuvel). Join David Yoon in conversation with Daniel Elam about the digital world, crafting a thriller, and his work as co-publisher of Joy Revolution, a Random House YA imprint dedicated to love stories starring people of color.
This event is supported by the U.S. Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macao.
Authors will appear virtually.
