The Future of the Book

A session at Spur Festival - The Future of the Book

Thursday 11th April, 2013

7:00pm to 9:00pm (EST)

Obsolescence or rebirth? Two dynamic and informed proponents of public access to literature debate what new technologies signal for the book, and consider what else might be under transformation as the centuries-old form loses the weight of its physical pages and covers.
