Moira Weigel and Ben Tarnoff

Harvard Book Store's virtual event series welcomes Logic Magazine co-founders MOIRA WEIGEL and BEN TARNOFF for a discussion of their co-edited book, Voices from the Valley: Tech Workers Talk About What They Do—and How They Do It.


In Voices from the Valley, the celebrated writers and Logic cofounders Moira Weigel and Ben Tarnoff take an unprecedented dive into the tech industry, conducting unfiltered, in-depth, anonymous interviews with tech workers at all levels, including a data scientist, a start-up founder, a cook who serves their lunch, and a PR wizard. In the process, Weigel and Tarnoff open the conversation about the tech industry at large, a conversation that has previously been dominated by the voices of CEOs.

Deeply illuminating, revealing, and at times lurid, Voices from the Valley is a vital and comprehensive view of an industry that governs our lives.
