Survival of the Book in the Digital Age: This Thursday at History Cafe

September 16th is the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s time for another History Cafe at The Pub at Third Place Books (6504 20th Ave NE).

This month the topic hits home for the folks upstairs at Ravenna Third Place Books. Here’s the description from the KCTS9 website:

Can the book survive the digital age? Michael Lieberman, co-owner of Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers in Pioneer Square and the creator of the blog Book Patrol, leads an informal discussion on the ever changing role of technology in the book world. Also, learn about the latest in print on demand technology as we look at Third Place Book’s amazing book-making machine, “Ginger.”

The talk starts at 7pm in the Authors Corner, but you encouraged to arrive early to partake of happy hour.

If you miss the event or previous History Cafe discussions, they are available for viewing on the KCTS9 History Cafe homepage. And that goes for the Science Cafes, too!

The History Cafe series is a partnership between KCTS9, MOHAI,, Seattle Public Libraries, WGBH, and The Pub at Ravenna Third Place.
