About the Event
Did you love Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid? Then log in and learn how to make an online text adventure story with Alex Boyd, who teaches interactive fiction at the University of Central Florida. Audience members will help Alex re-imagine a classic tale by creating forks in the road, surprises, and alternate endings using Twine, a free online program for telling interactive, nonlinear stories. No coding experience is necessary to participate, and you can build the story at home along with Alex!
This event is brought to you by Fall for the Book and the Gaithersburg Book Festival.
