In The Glass Cage, best-selling author Nicholas Carr digs behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, as he explores the hidden costs of granting software dominion over our work and our leisure. Even as they bring ease to our lives, these programs are stealing something essential from us. 

Nicholas Carr is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-finalist The Shallows, and the best-selling The Big Switch and Does It Matter? Former executive director of the Harvard Business Review, he has written for The Atlantic, The New York Times and Wired. He lives in Boulder, Colorado. 

Following the presentation, there will be a book signing and reception with light refreshments. The Glass Cage: Automation and Us will be available for purchase.
