The Death Of Print At Perth Writer’s Festival

A panel debate on a subject quite dear to our hearts over at this here web thingamijig, Perth’s Writers Festival pulls out the big guns by securing TIME’s technology writer, Lev Grossman for an appearance. The man who can make everyone from Steve Jobs to Mark Zuckerberg look like modern day heroes, Grossman towers over many other writers in both the print and electronic fields, and so hearing his opinion on the apparent demise of this much-loved art form is worth the ticket price alone. Incidentally, one of the questions for the panel also deals with e-books, something we recently just bought our Dad for his birthday but can’t figure out how to use. Hopefully Lev can give us some instructions.
