The Bronx Library Center hosts Swedish journalists Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson to talk about their experiences with gaming icon “Notch” and the state of the gaming industry in Sweden. For kids, teens, adults, and anyone with a love for Minecraft and indie gaming!
Minecraft is played by more than 30 million people of all ages around the world and revolutionized the indie gaming industry. The Swedish creator of this cultural phenomenon, known as “Notch,” has become an icon and a multi-millionaire in a few short years. Kids and adults have embraced the game for its simple, unique design and its endless possibilities for creative innovation.
Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything (November 5, 2013), is based on Linus Larsson and Daniel Goldberg’s exclusive interviews with Notch, his family and friends, and big players in the gaming community.

Seven Stories Press spent the weekend in Orlando at Minecon 2013. What an experience! There were 7,500 diehard Minecraft fans of all ages, all full of frantic energy and all eager to check out the first book on the history of the game and Notch’s childhood and his gaming inspirations. The authors, Swedish journalists Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson, signed copies of the book and answered questions from fans all weekend. We heard many cries of “I hate reading but I’ll read this book!” and parents claiming, “this is a book I can actually get my kid to read.” We’re thrilled to have reached so many dedicated fans this weekend and we can’t wait for Minecon 2014!
