Join Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang on Their In Real Life Tour!

Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang will be making appearances in support of their new graphic novel In Real Life, adapted from Doctorow’s story “Anda’s Game”! While playing her favorite MMORPG, Coarsegold Online, Anda meets and befriends a gold farmer—a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person’s real livelihood is at stake. The comic, published by First Second Books, is available October 14th.

Check out an excerpt from IRL, and read the original comic “Con/Game,” set in the IRL universe. Then click through to see if the IRL tour is coming to a town near you!
