Thrilling news! Jon McGoran, author of Drift, an ecological thriller from Tor/Forge Books will appear in Collingswood to share in a special discussion about genetically engineered foods (GMOs).
His work has appeared in a variety of publications and anthologies. He is the editor in chief of Grid, a magazine covering issues of sustainability. As a long time Communications Director at Weavers Way Co-op, Jon’s interest in sustainable living has informed his writing.
“I have been following and writing about trends in food and agriculture for many years,” says McGoran. “As a fan of thrillers with massive crazy evil plots, and a writer with one of those minds that is always hatching them, I couldn’t help notice how the news about food in recent years has read like a thriller, or even science fiction: genetic modification, transgenics, cloning, irradiation, and the release of genetically engineered foods into the environment. When I had the ideas at the center of Drift, I knew it was a book I had to write.”
