AN AGE-OLD STORY WITH A FUTURISTIC TWIST. Themes like trust, community and wisdom might not sound thrilling on the surface. But mix them with a post-apocalyptic scenario of tyranny, totalitarian power and a fight to restore humanity and you’ve got a book that destroys stereotypes faster than “The Hunger Games” breaks box office records. “Tribes of Eden is a classic thriller … that people of all ages can enjoy,” says author William Thomas. Thomas’ storytelling relies heavily on inspiration from his transformative work in aging services and his efforts to change the way society views aging. The coming-of-age story features a young girl who must lead an alliance of young and old, working together, to restore humanity. The paperback edition of Tribes of Eden was released April 2.
