Cory Doctorow's young adult novel "Little Brother" plunges readers into a dystopic version of San Francisco, in which the Bay Bridge is attacked by terrorists and the Department of Homeland Security reigns supreme. We talk to Doctorow about his writing and work with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and to city librarian Luis Herrera about why the book was selected as the San Francisco Public Library's One City One Book selection for 2013.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Cory Doctorow, author of "Little Brother," co-editor of the website Boing Boing and former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation
  • Luis Herrera, city librarian at the San Francisco Public Library
