000000000000000_bbrown_tetris

Cartoonist BOX BROWN appears in conversation with Austin Kleon at BookPeople to present and sign his new book Tetris: The Games People Play on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 3:00 PM.

Tetris, one of the first popular video games, has since become iconic and immediately recognizable around the world. Yet few are familiar with the game’s turbulent origin story involving secret trips to the Soviet Union, tense bidding wars, and outright theft. Author Box Brown is filling in all the exciting details in his new book Tetris: The Games People Play. Come join us this afternoon for a fun discussion with Steal Like an Artist author Austin Kleon.

ABOUT TETRIS:
It is, perhaps, the perfect video game. Simple yet addictive, Tetris delivers an irresistible, unending puzzle that has players hooked. Play it long enough and you’ll see those brightly colored geometric shapes everywhere. You’ll see them in your dreams.
Alexey Pajitnov had big ideas about games. In 1984, he created Tetris in his spare time while developing software for the Soviet government. Once Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, it was an instant hit. Nintendo, Atari, Sega—game developers big and small all wanted Tetris. A bidding war was sparked, followed by clandestine trips to Moscow, backroom deals, innumerable miscommunications, and outright theft.
New York Times–bestselling author Box Brown untangles this complex history and delves deep into the role games play in art, culture, and commerce. For the first time and in unparalleled detail, Tetris: The Games People Play tells the true story of the world’s most popular video game.

ABOUT BOX BROWN:
Box Brown is an Ignatz Award-winning cartoonist, illustrator, and comic publisher from Philadelphia. His book Andre the Giant: Life and Legend was released in 2014 and spent three weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list. His second graphic novel with publisher First Second is Tetris: The Games People Play. Brown launched the independent comics publishing house Retrofit Comics in 2011.
