Event

Out of Print
ABOUT THE FILM:
Narrated by Meryl Streep, this award-winning documentary asks the question: is the book as we know it dead?

Delve into the topsy-turvy world of words as we follow the turbulent and exciting journey from the printed book through the digital revolution. Jeff Bezos, Ray Bradbury, Scott Turow, and Jeffrey Toobin join parents, students, educators and scientists to highlight how this revolution is changing everything about the printed word  and us.


SCHEDULE:
8PM - Film, Out of Print
9PM - Q&A with the director, Vivienne Roumani


MORE ABOUT THE FILM:
The interconnectivity of the architecture of information became evident with the first interview: the bookseller led to the author, which led to the publisher, to the librarian, the reader, the pirate web site, the educator, the cognitive scientist; issues of copyright, preservation, knowledge, democratization, and diversity of access and sources were all intertwined. "Is the book dead?" was simply the starting point to get to the bottom of a transformation that ultimately affects every aspect of our society.  A riveting debate involving Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, Authors Guild President and best-selling novelist Scott Turow, and Harvard Librarian Robert Darnton about the questions confronting the word industry helped me weave order as I tackled the core issues of the future of ideas. These are issues that impact the very essence of our civilization, and I hope that the clarity that Out of Print offers is a starting point around which we can engage in a candid and fruitful discussion that will help direct our future.
