Award-winning cartoonist and illustrator Box Brown appears in conversation with Ed Luce at the Booksmith on Monday, October 17th at 7:30 PM to discuss Tetris: The Games People Play, a comics history of the beloved, addictive game. In 1984, Alexy Pajitnov created Tetris in his spare time while developing software for the Soviet government. Once Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, it became a megahit, sparking a bidding war among the major game developers where no tactic was too underhanded to secure the game for distribution. New York Times-bestselling author Box Brown untangles this complex history and demonstrates the impact a well-designed game can have on art, culture, and commerce across the world.
