Great Conversations is an afternoon of delicious appetizers and desserts and an in-depth conversation with a subject area expert. This is the 4th Annual Great Conversations hosted by the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation. It will take place on April 28 from 2-5 p.m. at Los Alamos High School in the new building. This is the third in a series about the conversations that will take place.
Reading into the Change in Books: Kindle, Nook & iPad
How is the nature of the publishing industry being fundamentally altered? Steven Thomas, the Los Alamos County Library Chief Administrator, will guide a conversation on the effects of technology on libraries, publishers, and most importantly, readers.
This conversation will delve into the future of the book as the center of education and learning. Change is inevitable, but how will technology share the future of libraries? What do experts studying current industry trends think will happen next?
Thomas has served as a library manager/administrator in systems including the Brooklyn, New York Public Library, the Fayetteville Arkansas Public Library, the Kanawha County West Virginia Library System, and the Washington County Arkansas Library System.
He and his wife, Lisa Caldwell, recently re-located to Los Alamos and they love it here!
