By some estimates, the video game industry is bigger - as measured by revenue - than global film production and North American professional sports combined. Join the Pell Center and Salve Regina's eSports Club for a conversation about gaming, e-sports and their broader impact on society.

The discussion will feature Kimberley Wallace, who has spent over a decade covering the video game industry, becoming a key voice on the RPG (role-playing) and narrative-driven game scene. Currently the features editor at Game Informer, she has tackled a variety of topics, from video game addiction to moderating online games.
