Book Cultures, Book Events Conference

This event looks really interesting

Book Cultures, Book Events

A significant development in literature at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries has been the growth of literary festivals and book towns. In the new media era, the opportunity to meet authors and readers face-to-face, to buy books and other merchandise, and to align a liking for literature with travel and tourism, is taken up by hundreds of thousands of readers every year. The Book Cultures, Book Events project brings together practitioners and academics to share their research and experience. Supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Universities of Dundee and Stirling, Queen Margaret University, and Bookfestival Scotland.
