Engage with science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger Cory Doctorow as he discusses publishing, digital content and the future of narrative with Sean Redmond, Deakin University's Associate Professor in Media and Communication. If science fiction writers try to imagine the future, what do they see for the publishing industry and storytelling in a digital age?

Cory is the co-editor of Boing Boing and the author of young adult novels like Homeland, Pirate cinema and Little brother, and novels for adults like Rapture of the nerds and Makers. He is the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group. Born in Toronto, Canada, he now lives in London.

This unique event is presented by the Centre for Youth Literature as part of the Library's Digital Society series, exploring the interface of digital and analogue worlds and their impact on human experience and innovation.
