The Great Debate is one of the most popular events at the London Book Fair. This year, we’re offering the opportunity for anyone -- including those who can’t attend -- to weigh in with their views on video and maybe even influence the outcome.
The theme of this year’s event is Amazon: Friend or Foe? Debaters include Tim Godfray, chief executive of the UK Booksellers Association; Rob Levine, bestselling author; Jennifer 8. Lee, Publisher of DailyLit/Plympton, and Eoin Purcell, editor of New Island Books and Irish Publishing News. The debate will be moderated by: Michael Healy, Executive Director of the Copyright Clearance Center and introduced by Susan Danziger, Organizer of The Publishing Point and Founder/CEO of Ziggeo.
Admission is free if you have a pass to the London Book Fair.
If you want to make your views known, you can record a short video using the Ziggeo link here: http://ziggeo.com/3ed98835
We will be showing as many of the short videos as possible before the debate begins.
You have 20 seconds to record whether or not you think Amazon is a positive influence on the publishing industry -- and why that is.
Many thanks to our friends at Bowker Identifier Services for sponsoring The Great Debate.
