About the Presenter

Novel Effect brings stories to life through a platform that uses voice recognition as you read a book aloud to play perfectly timed theme music, sound effects, and more to immerse readers in the story—similar to being in a movie. Novel Effect has also developed a creation suite which allows anyone to create their own immersive stories.

*Please note: In the case of rain, Saturday morning’s performance will be relocated doors to JBL Theater.
