Are books being redefined by innovation? This year’s SV Reads selections include two books focusing on the intersection of traditional books and technology. Carr, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, examines the intellectual and cultural consequences of computers and the Internet. Bay Area author Sloan discusses the inspiration behind his quirky novel and explores new ideas for books and readers in the digital age.
