Meanland - The Evolution of the Bookshop

In partnership with Meanjin and Overland, we continue this series in 2011. With Amazon.com, ebooks and print-on-demand, are we seeing the end of the traditional bookstore? In the first Meanland event for 2011, a panel of retailers, e-traders and industry insiders discuss how book selling is changing and what that evolution means for readers, writers and literature.
