GARY WOLF - reading & booksigning for "Wired - A Romance"
 - August 5, 7 pm
@ The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street, San Francisco)

"Wired - A Romance" is the story of Louis Rossetto - a dreamer who
turned American media on its head. Rossetto had no money, no home, no
job. Five years later he owned the hottest publication in America.
Gary Wolf, one of Wired's most popular writers, offers an insider's
account of the founding of a magazine that changed America.

In the 1990's, the Day-Glo pages of Wired were everywhere - on
television, passed around the halls of Congress, displayed in the
office of the president of the United States. Wired's headquarters in
San Francisco became a pilgrimage site for everybody who wanted to be
at the center of the digital revolution. Not since the early days of
Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone had anybody so brilliantly channeled the
enthusiasms of his era.
