Future of the Book

What is the future of the book? We are exploring this question through a series of experiments in collaborative, improvisational publishing. The con­cept: a series of “book sprints” that took place in real time at the Frank­furt Book Fair (October 2013), at Arizona State University in Phoenix, AZ (January 2014), at Stanford University in California (May 2014) and at the Society for Scholarly Publishing Annual Meeting (June 2016). Drawing together a diverse collective of authors, critics, publishers, journalists and others, we are curating a series of performances, investigations and polemics on the future of read­ing, writ­ing, edit­ing, and the broader systems of literary production and consumption
