And another forthcoming event

Chris Meade, Digital Writer and Director of if:book

Is the book dead?
Thursday 31 March, University Centre Folkestone

Is the arrival of the iPad and Kindle something to be feared or celebrated by lovers of reading?

Does the book have a future and what is a book if it isn't defined as an object made of sheets of paper glued together down one side?

What are the implications for literary culture now that we can all be 'amplified authors', capable of transmitting our words via blogs and social networks, to mix media and put our words on the global bookshelf of the web?
