Digital Book World is more than an annual conference; it’s also a network of optimistic publishing professionals from all across the industry.
In the midst of the gloom-and-doom naysayers and pundits, there’s a thriving community of publishers, editors, marketers, agents, booksellers, librarians, authors, and readers of all kinds who are passionate about the book, in all its forms, and are working within the industry to help change it for the better.
Digital Book World’s 7×20×21 series (sponsored by Verso Digital) is a PechaKucha-style event with a couple of tweaks.
Pecha what…? Kucha who…?
PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images. The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery, lounge, bar, club, creative kitchen SuperDeluxe in February 2003. Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global PechaKucha Night network and organise PechaKucha Night Tokyo.
If you’re passionate about publishing and optimistic about the future, this event is just for you.
