Town Hall Seattle says
In today’s technology-dependent world of e-books and computer screens, what’s the fate of physical paper? Historian Mark Kurlansky (Cod, Salt) tackles this essential question in his new book called, you guessed it, Paper. By diving into the history of paper and the written word (from the Ancient Greeks and the Renaissance, to its key role in the American Revolution) Kurlansky paints a complete picture of this commodity’s influence on society. He’ll argue that, despite what many think, paper is “here to stay.” To back up his claim, he’ll give examples of paper’s pivotal role in influencing politics, religion, education, art, and just about every other facet of life.
