New Novel Set In Overland Park Looks At Online Video Gaming

Oct 24, 2014

An Overland Park teenager plans his life around his favorite online video game to the point where his divorced parents agree on this much: “Get off the damn computer!”

While this could be the story in any number of households around the metro, it's actually part of the plot line in a young adult novel coming out in November.  In this edition of Up to Date, Larry Tabak, author of In Real Life, talks with Steve Kraske about why he chose Overland Park as the setting, how real is his depiction of the professional gamer’s life, and shares his thoughts on Gamergate.
