Vancouver Writers Fest

50. The Superhero in you

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents


Host: Ken Boesem

What if hero and superhuman Captain America was not simply fiction but near-future scientific achievement? Professor, author and comic book enthusiast E. Paul Zehr explores the rapid development of biomedical science and engineering, as told in his fascinating Chasing Captain America. In a mind-bending yet accessible presentation, he explains how—with our ever-expanding scientific and technological prowess—human biological adaptability is now in our accomplished, but fallible, hands. One of our non-fiction events of the Festival, it’s a reminder that truth really can be stranger than fiction.

Also suitable for grades 10-12.
