Storytelling and Retelling
Join us at 1pm on Friday 6th December at Luminous Books for an informal talk about storytelling as a mode of publishing, and other creative modes of distribution, with Louise O’Hare (The London Bookshop Map) and Lynn Harris (AND Publishing).
How does the tradition of oral storytelling – the way narratives shift and stories alter in their retelling – relate to other forms of distribution and ways texts are interacted with, generated, reproduced and disseminated?
Louise O’Hare, editor of The London Bookshop Map, will talk about Dora García’s Twenty-three million, five hundred and eighty-six thousand, four hundred and ninety stories (2013 – ongoing) commissioned for The London Bookshop Map iphone app which launches early December.
Lynn Harris, AND Publishing London, will discuss Variable Format, The Piracy Project and other self-publishing platforms. A collection of books from AND Publishing’s projects will be on display at Luminous Books.
Friday 6th December 20131-2pmFREE
