The 10 best things to do this week, book signing edition

4. Envision how it could’ve gone down at Take Two Storytelling 3 Year Anniversary Show, where storytellers bring you one true story with two different endings, so while one ending is what really happened, the other rolls back the clock to make it all turn out differently.

7. Look into our future at What Sci-Fi Movies Can Teach Tech Companies, a special evening presentation and book-signing that illustrates how sci-fi can be used as a guide for exploring the problems we face as AI, 3D printing, robots and more, increasingly govern our world. (Thursday, The Williamsburg Hotel, FREE)
