Arts and Science Festival 2014

To coincide with the announcement of the winners of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate Writing Competitions 2014, this Question Time-style event will debate the topic undergraduate students have written on: ‘In our digital age, what value do books have?’

Are you passionate about reading? Do you buy more books than you’ll ever have chance to read? Are you a Kindle convert? Or do you like both? Come along and join in with the debate and pick up a free book (a real live one!) as part of our ‘book crossing’ promotion.

To submit an advance question to the panel, please email Ruth Pemberton at: r.pemberton@bham.ac.uk

This event is presented as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival.
