In my history of publishing class we’ve talked a little about the act of reading–and whether reading ebooks or listening to audio books is reading. Here’s an upcoming Oregon Humanities talk for anyone intruiged by the question of how eBooks affect reading?
“From Print to Pixels: The Act of Reading in the Digital Age”
Saturday, May 12: 2 – 3 p.m.
Ashland Branch Library
410 Siskiyou Boulevard
Author Mark Cunningham, who has written The Green Age of Asher Witherow and Lost Son, will lead a conversatiohn on the ways in which digital reading might affect writing and more broadly the ways in which we think about information.
“From Print to Pixels: The Act of Reading in the Digital Age,” will also be presented at the Eagle Point Branch Library (Saturday, May 12: 10 – 11 a.m.,239 West Main Street) and at the Applegate Branch Library (Sunday, May 13, 3 – 4 p.m., 18485 North Applegate Road).
The program is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project and is hosted by Jackson County Library Services and the Friends of the Library of Applegate, Eagle Point, and Ashland.
