Join Elliot Ackerman and Mark Mazzetti at Conn Ave on Thursday, March 14, 2024, at 7:00 pm for an exploration of Ackerman's latest novel, "2054." Set two decades after a devastating conflict between the United States and China, the narrative unfolds in a nation gripped by a new political party's authoritarian rule. As violent resistance mounts against this regime, the sudden collapse of the American president during a national address triggers a series of events that thrust the country into chaos and suspicion. Against a backdrop of advanced AI and geopolitical intrigue, Ackerman and Admiral James Stavridis weave a gripping tale that forces readers to confront the potential consequences of societal trajectories. With Ackerman's profound understanding of warfare and geopolitics and Mazzetti's investigative prowess, this discussion promises to delve into the novel's intricate layers, offering insights into its compelling narrative and thought-provoking themes.
