The Code: Behind-the-scenes history of the people who built Silicon Valley

Monday, July 22, 2019

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 7pm, Third Place Books, author Margaret O’Mara will read from her new book: The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America 

Long before Margaret O'Mara became one of our most consequential historians of the American-led digital revolution, she worked in the Clinton White House in the earliest days of the commercial Internet.

Deploying a wonderfully rich and diverse cast of protagonists across four generations of explosive growth in the Valley, O'Mara has wrestled into magnificent narrative form one of the most fateful developments in modern American history.

The Code is the true, behind-the-scenes history of the people who built Silicon Valley and shaped Big Tech in America.

You'll have to wait until Saturday, July 27 at 6pm for another author this week, when Nick He reads from his book: Two Dads and Three Girls

One hundred percent made in China, Nick grew up in an environment where being gay was not an option. In this memoir, he takes readers on his journey from growing up as a confused "straight" boy from China to having a lovely husband and three girls through surrogacy.

Two Dads and Three Girls is a celebration of courage and love. It challenges each of us to dig deep into our soul to find what matters most to us, gain courage through the stories, and live our lives in truth.

Third Place Books is on the upper level of Town Center, at the intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way in Lake Forest Park.

Call the bookstore to reserve a copy of one of these books, then have the author sign the book at the event. 206-366-3333.
