this free, public event will feature a diverse group of distinguished
speakers and a compelling display drawn from the Library's
the Library has selected a group of highly respected speakers who
will analyze the book from a variety of essential perspectives. They
will include authors, educators, legislators, historians, rare-book
experts, legal scholars, librarians, digital-media specialists, publishers,
copyright attorneys, members of Congress and other policymakers.
Two keynote addresses, three lectures and three moderated panels
comprise the symposium. Topics will range from the history of book
publishing to the future of the book in a digital world.
A new Library exhibition, "Books that Shaped the World," will be
on view at the summit. The display builds on the Library's recent
exhibition, "Books That Shaped America." (See story on page 12.)
The summit will be the first in a periodic series of international
summits, held in different cities around the world, which will
examine the revolution in knowledge and culture through the book,
whatever its forms. The 2012 event at the Library of Congress-
and subsequent summits in other cities-will address reading and
writing at a time when language, thinking and communication are
dramatically changing. The 2013 Summit will be held in Singapore.
"It is an honor for Singapore to host the Second International
Summit of the Book following the inaugural summit organized by
the prestigious Library of Congress," said Elaine Ng, CEO of the
National Library Board of Singapore.
"We look forward to an insightful debate on the evolving concept
of the book from an Asian perspective. We are privileged to have
Professor Tommy Koh, Singapore's Ambassador-At-Large and
former Ambassador to the United Nations, as chairman of the
organizing committee. We warmly welcome everyone to the summit."
