Future of the Book at the South Bank

April 5, 2007

Hello. Sorry. I’m very busy at the moment and booktwo isn’t getting the attention it deserves, although I hope you’re enjoying the regular Stop Press – it’s all stuff I’d like to write more about if I had more time – also about this, and particularly this, hopefully soon.

In the mean time, a heads-up for Londoners about this (ta, Max):

Margaret Atwood, Andrew O’Hagan, Stephen Page & Erica Wagner
Digitise or Die: What is the Future of the Book?

Tuesday 17 April 2007, 7:30 P.M, Queen Elizabeth Hall.

What is the future of the book? Authors Margaret Atwood, Andrew O’Hagan and Erica Wagner and publisher Stephen Page, Chief Executive of Faber & Faber, discuss the brave new world of authors, readers and publishers in the age of new technology.

Buy tickets here.

I’ve got a ticket, although rather unhelpfully it’s slap bang in the the middle of the London Book Fair, which I’ll also be attending, so this might prove difficult – even if it’s back in West London after last year’s debacle.

What this interesting crew have to say is anyone’s guess – Ms Atwood’s major engagement with the future outside her novels is the muchderided LongPen. We shall see. If you’re coming, let me know.
