"I Hate the Internet: A Novel" by Jarett Kobek

Wednesday, August 3, 2022, 6 p.m.

Set nearly a decade ago in San Francisco as billions of dollars fuel the city’s spectacular gentrification and the human wreckage piles up, a group of victims of the digital boom considered newly useless in a world that savagely despises the pointless and unprofitable experience the blunt hand of market forces. In this first novel, Jarett Kobek tackles the pressing questions of the so-called singularity. Why do we applaud the enrichment of CEOs at the expense of the weak and the powerless? Why are we giving away our intellectual property? Why is twenty-first-century activism nothing more than a series of morality lectures typed into devices built by slaves?

Please note the change of delivery and venue:
This event will now take place at the Amerikahaus and not online—we will meet in the well-ventilated conference room on the ground floor. The room is accessible via stairs or elevator.

Attendees must furbish proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, which will be checked by the Amerikahaus Literary Circle advisor, who has set this policy, which differs somewhat from the Amerikahaus policy for visitors.
