Ted Anton will read from and talk about his grand tour through synthetic biology, Programmable Planet. “If you’ve ever wondered about the promise―and the peril―of synthetic biology and its power to transform life, then Programmable Planet is the book for you. Ted Anton’s exploration of both the history and the future of the ways we engineer life is incisive, engaging, and downright fascinating. -- Deborah Blum

Ted Anton is Professor Emeritus of English at DePaul University. He is the author of several books, including The Longevity Seekers: Science, Business, and the Fountain of Youth, and Planet of Microbes: The Perils and Potential of Earth's Essential Life Forms.
