Looking through the events scheduled for day two (June 13th) of Printers Row I’ve found two events that I find fascinating and useful, but unfortunately they are schedule for the same time. This always happens at some point during a festival and at 4pm there are two valuable discussions taking place.
On the Center Stage there will be a discussion on the wealth of independent publishers in Chicago. It will be moderated by Featherproof’s Jonathan Messinger and it will feature four great writers/publishers Cris Mazza, Davis Schneiderman, Zoe Zolbrod and Gina Frangello.
Also taking place at 4pm at Hotel Blake in the Burnham Room will be a panel discussion on the topic of e-lit. This is a really hot topic right now as the devices begin to become more available and multifunctional. The panel of Jimmy Greenfield, Owen Youngman and Claire Zulkey will discuss this new era in publishing.
It’s a tough one, and it only adds to the fun and excitement of this weekend’s literary festival.
