November 24, 2009 | CUNY Lecture Series, William Macaulay Honors College at CUNY
No matter what platform one chooses, reading will remain an “extraordinary adventure,” according to Ann Kirschner, dean of the William E. Macaulay Honors College. “It’s all about reading — the way you are transported to another place,” said Kirschner in a panel discussion entitled “Reading in a Digital Age,” held at Macaulay. “The goal is to figure out how technology can make creative content better — not fight with it.” Participants included New York Magazine Editor Adam Moss; Lisa Holton, former president of Scholastic Books and Fairs; and Ben Vershbow of Digital Ventures Group at the New York Pubic Library. Bill Goldstein, founding editor of nytimes.com/books, served as moderator.
