“Are Books Dead?” is the title of an illustrated lecture-discussion at Sierra College in Rocklin. Award-winning Berkeley book publisher Malcolm Margolin and Sierra College author Gary Noy will speak at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus on Friday, March 6 at 7pm.

What makes for a good book? Is the printed, illustrated and full-color book dead? Replaced by black and white and cheaper, electronic versions? This illustrated discussion will focus on the past, present and future of publishing.

Malcolm Margolin is publisher of Heyday Books in Berkeley and is recipient of the 2012 Chairman’s Commendation from the National Endowment of the Humanities. Heyday has published hundreds of titles on the rich history, natural history and human cultures of California. Gary Noy is Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the Sierra College Press and author of Sierra Stories: Tales of Dreamers, Schemers, Bigots and Rogues, recently published by the Heyday-Sierra College Press co-publishing partnership. Moderator is Joe Medeiros, current Editor-in-Chief of Sierra College Press. The evening is cosponsored by Sierra College Library, Friends of the Library and Sierra College Press.

The lecture-discussion will take place in the Rare Book Room, second floor, at the Rocklin Camus Library of Sierra College at 7 PM. Admission is free, and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Light desserts and refreshments will follow.
