Publishing Futures â€“ Oxford Literary Festival
The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies hosted a well-attended event at the Oxford Literary Festival on Sunday 3 April. Chaired by Angus Phillips, the topic was the future of book publishing in the light of the growing popularity of ebooks and apps. In a lively debate, the panel discussed the exciting possibilities of digital publishing, moving beyond the plain text to more interactive products. The speakers were Marcus du Sautoy, Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University and author of The Number Mysteries; Felicity Bryan, the Oxford-based literary agent of authors such as Edmund de Waal and Karen Armstrong; and Cathy Galvin, Deputy Editor of The Sunday Times Magazine.
