Arts & Culture Talk: Steve Wasserman

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 1:30 AM

Do Books Have a Future in the Digital Age? Is the Age of Gutenberg finished?  Has the Internet now become so widespread as to render books obsolete?  Are publishers dinosaur institutions? Is the crisis of American literacy also a crisis of American democracy? Does it matter? Steve Wasserman, former editor of the Los Angeles Times Book Review and, since 2016, publisher and executive director of Berkeley's own Heyday Books, will argue that books will survive as long as the human species is defined by its opposable thumb and its obsessive need to tell each other stories. Join us for a drink or small bite beforehand in Morgan’s Bar & Lounge. Take a seat at the beautifully restored bar and sip on a hand-crafted cocktail while meeting other members and attendees. $5 for members, $10 for non-members. *Tickets available up to one hour before the start of the event!
