Interested in engaging with award-winning authors and today’s leading thinkers? We’d like to offer you a unique opportunity to satisfy that interest through a week-long celebration of the 30th anniversary of The London Review of Books.
As every iPad and Kindle we see on the subway reminds us, developments in the internet and electronic publishing are revolutionizing the way books are sold and read. On April 24th, The London Review of Books will host “The Author in the Age of the Internet.” Join acclaimed authors such as Andrew O’Hagan and John Lanchester as they discuss how the nature of fictional and non-fictional texts will be altered if the physical book dies out, and the profound change in the transfer of knowledge in society and its effect on authors.
Other events include a discussion with Tariq Ali, Britain’s most outspoken authority on western engagement in Iraq, and a lecture by Jacqueline Rose, author of The Question of Zion, offering a new interpretation of the Dreyfus Affair.
Don’t miss your chance to hear from these experts from across the pond—this limited series commences on April 19th and will take place at various New York City venues.
