Is the book really dead? Or is it just resting?
Books are both beloved and besieged. They have been transformed over the centuries from Gutenberg’s Bible to Lady Gaga’s confessional photo book to Amazon’s Kindle …. and beyond.
What is a book and, if we love them so much, why are they being threatened with extinction?
These audio posts will explore the beauty and the power of the book as well as its evolution into some quite new and equally wonderful. We will examine such topics as the craft of book making, the art of book writing, the economics of publishing, the politics of authorship, and the power of reading.
Our partner in this adventure is CFRU (93.3FM), Guelph’s community radio station. The Book Minute series will be featured on CFRU throughout their programming schedule.
From treasures to trash, this site will be all books, all the time.
