Technology has changed the way we work, communicate, rock out, and even revolt. And slowly but surely, we are saying goodbye to the print books we’ve always known and hello to svelte, environmentally friendly e-readers. To celebrate (or mourn) the loss of print, Cursor, Electric Literature, and Joyland (all digital projects) are teaming up to present an evening of readings from e-journals and other e-publications. Among the authors reading from e-readers are Ben Greeman, an editor at The New Yorker and fiction writer, as well as Lynne Tillman, a novelist, short-story writer, and cultural critic at the University of Albany. Enter the raffle to win a Kobo eReader and book packages. Soon, readings may be performed by authors in hologram, so get in the same room with them while you still can!
