Books should be for everyone
COLUMBIA, Mo 4/20/16 (Beat Byte)
Thank God for
In a world starving for alternatives to video-based entertainments -- games, TV, movies, Netflix, House of Cards marathons -- the
author and Columbia resident
brings a festival that could become the True/False of books.
That's right -- books, those slender-to-hefty written repositories of art, history, life, imagination, and the sum of all human knowledge.
Some are bound with a sturdy spine, others unbound -- on iPads and Kindles, and this Saturday at George's new event, the
Unbound Book Festival
"Unbound" isn't just clever wordplay, but an apt description of what George and his fellow organizers want to do:
the usually quiet, solitary act of reading and writing books, if just for a day.
