Who is Going to BookCamp Halifax?

I am excited to see that BookCamp Halifax is coming back to town. After a one year hiatus, the unconference for books and publishing is back for a third go round. Yay!

On Saturday Nov 9th, movers and shakers from the publishing, writing and bookselling worlds will be gathering at the Kybher Centre for Arts for a full day of passionate  and creative discussions around all things reading and writing related.  It is a casual kind of conference, one which leaves room for topics and discussions to arise organically as the day progresses.

BookCamp Halifax is a user-generated unconference designed to bring print publishers, educators, community builders, and the tech community together—for free! BookCamp Halifax is an opportunity to explore the present and future of books and book-like technologies. It’s open to anyone interested in the publishing industry and the potential dynamics of the reader/creator/publisher relationship.

Halifax Public Libraries will be there hosting a session on library research for writers, as well as leading a discussion on how to get your book into the library collection. Drop by and say hello.

A couple of the other planned sessions of note are What Editors Do/Why You Need One, and The “Media” in Social Media. The keynote speaker will be Sean Cranbury of Books on the Radio fame.
