Starting on Saturday 8th November, the Edinburgh Festival of Libraries will be running a week long programme of talks, walks, tours, presentations roadshows and behind-the-scenes peeks into some of the many different types of library services working in Edinburgh.
Lots of interesting things going on, but I’m kinda ruled out of any of the daytime events by working (I’ve maxed out my holiday allowance for the year, boo, hiss), which is a shame, because there’s plenty I’d have loved to be able to go to!
So, to make sure I still get to do *something*, I’ve emailed to book a place for the finale event on Friday 14th November:
Finale event – Future of the Book
Panel discussion “The Future of the Book”
Print books or e-books? Uplift or download? Writers and readers or interactive interchange? We are pleased to present a panel of informed people who will present and discuss a range of views on this topic.
The discussion will be chaired by Stuart Kelly, Literary Editor of Scotland on Sunday
Panel members include:
Donald Smith, Scottish Storytelling Centre
Francis Bickmore, Canongate Publishers
Hugh Andrews, Birlinn Publishers
Michelle Harper, OCLC
Join their discussion and get thinking about what part you will play in the future of the book. After the panel discussion, you are invited to continue the discussions on an informal basis and to enjoy a glass of wine, some light refreshments and some good company. This event is supported by OCLC and the National Library of Scotland
Scottish Book Trust, Sandeman House, Trunk’s Close, 55 High Street, EH1 1SR
7.00 pm onwards
Free – to book a place please contact 0131 623 4675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Just my sort of thing, yay!
