Save the dates: Jane McGonigal in NYC, Superbetter book signing

1507_Superbetter book cover

In September, we’re co-hosting two free public events with award-winning game maker and best-selling author Jane McGonigal.

Jane will speak about a decade’s worth of scientific research into the ways all games change how we respond to stress, challenge, and pain. She’ll explain how we can cultivate new powers of recovery and resilience in everyday life simply by adopting a more “gameful” mindset, and bring the same psychological strengths we naturally display when we play games to real-world goals.

Following her talk, she will sign copies of her second book Superbetter. This new book will be available for purchase at these events, or if you can’t make it, you can preorder a copy here.

Tickets will be released by August 18 on our Eventbrite for:

  • The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, September 15, 6 p.m.
  • NYU Game Center, September 16, 7 p.m.
