Vikram Chandra: "Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty"
Friday, October 3, 7:30pm - Doors open at 6:30pm
Kepler's Books

Menlo Park, CA 94025

Calling all engineers!  Calling all artists!  Can the effects of language escape language itself?  

It would not be an exaggeration to call Geek Sublime the only book of its kind, regardless of the long history of equating art and programming.  Its pages move eloquently and intelligently between poetry and mathematical figures.  Chandra carefully breaks down the assumptions "geeks" possess of artists and vice versa, specifically that all artists have an irresistibly sexy swagger and all programmers are famous, rich, and influential.  

Come meet Vikram Chandra as he discusses everything from logic gates, literary modernism, tech geek machismo, the Silicon Valley's "Indian Mafia," and the writings of the eleventh-century Kashmiri thinker Abhinavagupta.

Vikram Chandra is the author of three highly acclaimed works of fiction, most recently Sacred Games, which won the 2006 Hutch Crossword Award. Chandra lives in Oakland and teaches at UC Berkeley.

$25.00 -- Premier Ticket. Includes 1 copy of "The Care and Management of Lies", premier seating, and priority in the signing line.
