Grand Theft Childhood authors live in concert tonight  photo



Cheryl K. Olsen and her husband Larry Kutner have everything it takes to become the next big names in the videogame media wars. So far the only really well known figure we have is Jack Thompson, and we all know what he's like. No, Larry and Cheryl are nothing like Jack Thompson. They are unbiased, intelligent, thoughtful, and most of all, well informed; their book Grand Theft Childhood proves that.

What Cherly and Larry lack at this point is exposure, but hopefully that is about to change. They are both going to speak tonight, July 9th, at an engagement in the Boston area specifically intended for Boston-area videogame developers, though the event is open to the general public as well. Click here for details. 

Following that, Cheryl has informed me that she and Larry will also be speaking at this year's PAX, in a forum moderated by none other than N'Gai Croal. If that's not the stuff of future power and influence in the realm of videogames, I don't know what is.
