Greenlight is excited to host Seth Fried, author of The Great Frustration, to present The Municipalists, a novel about an unlikely pair of lonely outsiders–one human, one AI–on an adventure to save the great American city of Metropolis. In Metropolis, the gleaming city of tomorrow, the dream of the great American city has been achieved. But all that is about to change, unless a neurotic, rule-following bureaucrat and an irreverent, freewheeling artificial intelligence can save the city from a mysterious terrorist plot that threatens its very existence. The Municipalists is a thrilling, funny, and touching adventure story, a tour-de-force of imagination that trenchantly explores our relationships to the cities around us and the technologies guiding us into the future. Fried presents his book with a reading and conversation with Benjamin Samuel, co-founder of Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading.
