Join us for an evening of literary light! The biannual River River Lodestar Series welcomes writer and designer Matthew Derby for a reading and a Q&A about his broad experience working in both print and digital media, as well as on platforms spanning literature and game design.


Matthew Derby’s recent novelThe Silent History (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux 2014), was originally conceived as the first, major, exploratory, interactive novel designed for digital platforms. The Guardian called The Silent History “A compelling story about difference, rights and power”; Wired called it “Entirely revolutionary.” Matt’s work has also appeared in The Anchor Book of American Short Stories, Dzanc’sBest of the Web 2009, McSweeney’s, The Believer, Guernica, and elsewhere. Matt is also a designer for Harmonix, a video game studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The evening will also feature readings from the Spring 2017 issue of River River.
