Welcome

Welcome to the fourth month of the Immersive Book Club! We’re a group of friends in Oregon who get together to discuss immersive work, including theater, VR, site-specific works, experiential design, LARP, escape rooms, interactive fiction, and more. We meet during the last week of each month and stream our chat, with a community discussion that continues on Slack.

Show notes, information on past themes and selections, and links to previous months’ streamed shows are available here.
