Ministry for the Future Book Club

📚 One of my favorite futurists is Bryan Alexander, thinker in the academic space. I’m reading this book because he’s sponsoring a book club for it. The comments so far from fellow readers have been fascinating and thought-provoking. The book club is back with Ministry for the Future | Bryan Alexander

The plot focuses on a new United Nations agency tasked with addressing the problem, and how they proceed.  A counterpoint character is an aid workers who survives a horrible disaster and tries to figure out how to live afterwards. It’s a rich, ambitious, and frankly optimistic book, and might be just what we need now.
