When: Sun., May 23, 1 p.m. 2010

Want to read Cory Doctorow's new young-adult novel, For the Win? Go ahead—it's free on his website at craphound.com/ftw/download. Doctorow is a leading advocate of liberalizing copyright laws, often experimenting with new formats for print-on-demand and electronic download when he's not writing new works of science fiction, co-editing the hugely popular BoingBoing.net or writing for almost every major newspaper or magazine you've ever heard of. An icon for the blogger generation, Doctorow's latest book deals with an international team of teenagers linked by an online role-playing game who seek to crash the economy of every virtual world at once. Allegory clear enough for you? He also visits Barnes & Noble in Cary May 22 at 4 p.m. —Zack Smith
