Bestselling author (This is Shakespeare) and academic Emma Smith is here to talk about Portable Magic, her illuminating book that reveals the unexpected and unseen consequences of our love affair with books. She’ll explore the rise of the mass-market paperback, dismantle the myth that print began with Gutenberg and propose new definitions of a ‘classic’ book.
