1. Renowned game designer and best-selling author Jane McGonigal addresses the crowd of 500 lucky folks (some from as far as Canada) chosen to play her "Find The Future" game at The New York Public Library’s landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. This photo was taken at the beginning of the night while Jane addressed the excited, cheering crowd in the Rose Main Reading Room. From there, it was just a CRAZY fun night - and it’s still going on. Check out more pics, all by Jonathan Blanc. Have your own pics? Tumble ‘em, and tag them “Find The Future.” PS - you can play this game on your own at the Library this weekend while we celebrate our 100th birthday with a free weekend festival that includes programming, free ice cream, rare Stack tours and amazing LEGO Lion sculptures. So come to 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, wish the building happy birthday and check out all we’re offering.
