Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library and St. John's College present author and columnist James McGrath Morris in the Great Hall at St. John's College.

Morris will speak about the future of books and reading and will outline the seismic changes shaking up the world of book publishing and reading. “What is happening to books today is as important a moment in history as five centuries ago when Gutenberg created moveable type and launched the printing revolution,” said Morris. “The changes now taking place are more than a matter of replacing type, ink and paper with pixels—a profound shift is taking place in the act of reading itself.”

Combining his work experience in the publishing industry and his years as an author, Morris will explain why current changes are so significant and what lies ahead for readers. In a recent Type A column, Morris noted, “The ominous tones from the lesson learned by the music industry when it underwent a similar digital transformation may forecast the future of writing."
