The Book That Was To Come

April 13th, 1PM
Claudia Cassidy Theater, Chicago Cultural Center
Part of The Poetry Center of Chicago's annual reading series

Krissy Wilson, of The Art of Google Books, will read and discuss a suite of cento poems written using marginalia digitized by Google Books.

A discrete waypoint in our understanding of what the book might become, where it is (no longer) bound. Featuring poets and artists whose work concerns the past and future of literary forms, including recipients of the Envisioning the Future of the Book commission from the Center for Book & Paper Arts at Columbia College. Interventions may include artists’ books, works between page and screen, poems made from Google Books marginalia, and Orlando re-written by the vibrations of an oak tree.
