November 7, 2013Thursday, November 7th @ 7pm NYU Game Center
New York University MAGNET
2 Metrotech Center, 8th Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11201 Come by the Open Library from 5-7 pm to play Minecraft with the authors in a Minecraft library take-over!
Join Swedish authors Linus Larsson and Daniel Goldberg for this one-of-a-kind interactive event celebrating the launch of Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything. Hosted by the NYU Game Center, this event will include a reading, discussion and Minecraft gaming.
Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything (November 5, 2013) is a Cinderella story for the Internet age. It is the story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. It is about creation, exclusion, and that feeling of not fitting in. But above all it is the story of the fine line between seeming misfit and creative madman, and the birth of a tech visionary.

Barry Gifford will be at Word in Brooklyn on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 at 7:00pm to discuss his newest collection, The Roy Stories. He will be accompanied by jazz guitarist Miles Okazaki.
For forty years, the Roy stories have been the one continuous unbroken line in the otherwise kaleidoscopic career of one of America’s greatest living writers, Barry Gifford. Spanning time and space—the Southern and Midwestern United States from the 1940s through the 1980s—The Roy Stories chronicle the personal history of Gifford from Chicago to Miami in a Hemingway style Nick Adams story. Emotional, exploratory, and brimming with photographic realism, these stories are just that: stories, not memoir or autobiography, and a record of the times and the language of the time.
Barry Gifford, called “a master of the short story” by the New York Times Book Review, is the author of more than forty published works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, which have been translated into twenty-eight languages.
