About this Event

Described as a “stellar futuristic tale” by Kirkus Reviews, IGIST is the newest YA series sweeping the globe. At the event, the IGIST team will discuss their inspiration for the world’s first Immersive Novel and discuss IGIST’s mission to build a better future for humanity. This event is geared toward middle and high school students but is free for everyone to attend.

“I wish I had IGIST growing up as a young girl excited by science. IGIST is a thrilling read that will inspire future generations to change the world.”

—McKenna Kardish, Harvard 2015 - Astrophysics

Book Overview

In the not-so-distant future when humanity has colonized the solar system, orbiting the moon is a space station called IGIST (Intergalactic Institute of Science and Technology) that embodies a simple ethos: No matter what problems we face an idea can prevail. A young woman named Emi dreams of escaping the plague-ravaged Earth, attending the elite IGIST, and becoming a great scientist. Against all odds, she makes it into space and with a colorful cast of misfits, Martians, and scouts, races against the clock to create an antidote for the deadly amoebic monster that is the plague.

“Star Wars meets Harry Potter.”

—The Readings of an English Teacher

“I first gave it to my son to read: He loved it! He actually likes to read but is a pretty picky reader. He texted me from school during the day to tell me how much he loved the book!”

—Science in the City
