City Gems: Guided Tour

The Silent History Walking Tour


Saturday Nov 17, 2012 (3:15pm)


Lower East Side - Meet at the corner of Essex and Hester




As much as we've agonized over the loss of the printed word and the rise of the e-book, there are certain things traditional publishing simply can't do: take The Silent History, a novel told through daily updates deilvered via OS apps and supplemented with location-specific extras avilable only by syncing device GPS with predetermined coordinates. Join app creators Matt Derby, Kevin Moffett, and former McSweeny's editor Eli Horowitz for a sneak peek LES walking tour of sample geo-tagged "field report" storylines. Post-excurision refreshments offer a welcome perk-up, following the Saturday afternoon exercise.
