Litquake welcomes Jessica Powell, former Google executive and author of The Big Disruption: A Totally Fictional but Essentially True Silicon Valley Story. The first novel released in complete form on Medium.com, The Big Disruption was described by The New York Times as "a zany satire set inside a tech giant that bears more than a passing resemblance to a certain internet search company.” Sexism, cultish behaviors, absurdly grandiose ideas, paranoia -- welcome to the world of high tech, as if written by Evelyn Waugh. Join us for the Bay Area launch of Powell's much-anticipated novel, featuring the author reading from her book, and discussing it with Wired writer/podcaster Lauren Goode. $10 advance or at the door
