What if a computer chip mounted in your brain allowed everyone to read your thoughts? To market to you at all times? Could control your dreams?

M.T. Anderson, author of the award-winning, dystopian novel "Feed," asked Manson High School students these and other questions during a series of presentations Thursday (Oct. 11) at Manson High School.

He also told them the technology is already being developed and is the basis for "Feed."

Anderson, who also wrote "The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing," which won the National Book Award, the Boston Globe/Horn Book Prize, and was a Printz Honor Book.
"Feed" was a finalist for the National Book Award and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.

He is known for the versatility of his writing, as he is skilled in writing historical novels, science fiction and humor.
