The Silent History

Event Information

Please join the Written Arts program and the Experimental Humanities concentration for a reading of

“A groundbreaking novel, written and designed specially for iPad and iPhone, that uses serialization, exploration, and collaboration to tell the story of a generation of unusual children — born without the ability to create or comprehend language, but perhaps with other surprising skills of their own.”

WIRED calls the project “entirely revolutionary”; the LA Times writes that “it dramatically advances the way digital novels take advantage of the iPhone and iPad.” It’s a significant work in the (future) history of digital literature.

Authors Kevin Moffett and Matthew Derby will read from the project and answer questions at 7pm on Thursday, 12/6, in Weis Cinema. More information about The Silent History is online at http://www.thesilenthistory.com.
