You are cordially invited to “Beyond the Bookshelf: Empowering Authors and Reaching Readers in the Digital Age,” an evening of conversation and ideas celebrating five years of Authors Alliance. The party will be held at the David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley on Wednesday, May 15.
We’ll kick things off with a wine and appetizer reception, followed by a panel discussion on how authors create, share, and preserve knowledge in an ever-changing media landscape.
Our panelists include:
Brewster Kahle, Digital Librarian and founder of the Internet Archive
Jeffrey MacKie-Mason, University Librarian and Chief Digital Scholarship Officer, UC Berkeley
Abby Smith Rumsey, Historian of ideas focusing on the creation, preservation, and use of the cultural record
Randy Schekman, 2013 Nobel Laureate and Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, UC Berkeley
The panel will be moderated by Authors Alliance co-founder Molly Shaffer Van Houweling.
