Author to scrutinize print and pixels

February 18, 2013 by  

Mark Cunningham, a guest author from Oregon, will this week host a conversation about whether reading is just reading, no matter what format it takes.

‘From Print to Pixels: The Act of Reading in the Digital Age’ is open to everyone interested in books and reading, and could be a real eye-opener for anybody working for a printing company, or any other branch of the print industry.

Cunningham will lead a discussion on what happens when the chosen reading method is changed from print to digital format and whether devoted readers read the material the same way using a printed page and a digital screen on an electronic device.

Matters for discussion will include how digital reading may have an impact on the written word and how we will come to interact with information on an overall basis. This event is part of a program that engages the community to think outside the box through challenging conversations about things that are critical to everyday modern life.

Admission is free and all are welcome. The discussion is sponsored by the Oregon Humanities through their Conversation Project and will be held on Thursday, February 21 starting at 6:30 pm at the Oregon City Public Library located at 606 John Adams Street in Oregon City, Oregon. To learn more about this discussion, please visit the Print to Pixels: The Act of Reading in the Digital Age website or call the library at 503-657-8269 during regular library hours.
