WhereHaynes' Hall at McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE, Bothell, WA 98011
Description

The book has taken many shapes in the five millennia over which humans have sought to record information — varying with the needs of writers and readers and with materials available for production. Join us for a performance and lecture by a scholar and artist that will unpack the ways books have always been dynamic, interactive experiences, whether their interface looks like a tablet or a touchscreen. Come see the body of the book again to understand what is has been and what it might become.
