Festival hosts ‘Future of Book’ debate


Organizers are expecting a lively discussion at Spur Festival’s The Future of the Book debate tomorrow in Toronto.

With a focus on the impact of new technologies on the future of the book, the session will see Paul Holdengräber of LIVE at the New York Public Library and Hugh McGuire of LibriVox and PressBooks in discussion with moderator Sarah Fulford of Toronto Life.

Obsolescence or rebirth? What’s in store for this venerable vehicle as it loses “the weight of its physical pages and covers?” Drop into the Spur event to find out.

Although admission is free, tickets are required to get into the Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. debate.

The discussion is part of the Spur Toronto festival that runs from April 11 to 14.
