July Meet-Up: “Flash Back: A Novel (Fountain of Life Book One),” previously titled "Regeneration X” by alumna Ellison Blackburn

July 31
6-8 p.m.
Star Lounge Coffee Bar
2521 W. Chicago Ave.

In the not-too-distant future, a bioengineering, medical technology breakthrough—touted as the modern-day fountain of youth—means a redo of the past is not only conceivable, it is possible. The stuff of science fiction without the time machine, Renovation is a cosmetic procedure with hindsight built in—and Charlotte Rhys Fenn longs for a second crank at her life. On the verge of depression, forlorn with the machinations of the world, if nothing else, a do-over could shine a spark of light through the doldrums of Charley's middle age. Another past must lead to a different future.
