London Word Festival 22 Feb – 13 March

The London Word Festival is now up and running.  Of particular interest to publishers will be the Book Futures debate (Thursday March 13th 7pm at the Bishopsgate Institute), featuring Scott Pack, Chris Meade, John Lenehan and Shirley Dent. What does the future hold for reading, writing and publishing? When we all go digital, what will be left of the book? Is the Ebook actually any good? And has Blogging really revolutionised literature? - these are just some of the questions that the panel will be raising and hopefully answering.  Tickets are £7 or the concessionary rate of £5.  Click here to buy tickets and to find out more about this event.  The full programme of events can be found on the London Word Festival website: http://www.londonwordfestival.com/
