Of Wizards and Wookiees: A Panel Discussion on Gaming & Fandom

11/22/2010 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm
Celebrate all things geek and nerd with Ethan Gilsdorf (Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks) and Tony Pacitti (My Best Friend is a Wookiee), moderated by Rebecca Carroll (former managing editor of PAPER). Gilsdorf’s Fantasy Freaks is a road trip through fantasy and gaming subcultures, from Dungeons & Dragons gamers and live-action role-players, to Harry Potter wizard rockers and World of Warcraft players. Pacitti’s memoir is the coming-of-age story of certified geek and official Jedi Knight wannabe framed around Lucas’ epic Star Wars. Doritos and Mountain Dew will be on hand, as required for any truly geeky gathering. Facebook RSVP.
