Dave Eggers speaks at SF State
March 9, 2010 11:05 AM
Dave Eggers, author and publisher of the experimental publication San Francisco Panorama, will discuss the future of newspapers with others from the print industry at SF State tonight.
Panorama, a 320-page publication with a newspaper, magazine and book review section, includes work by several prominent writers, reporting on topics varying from NASCAR to home foreclosures to the Bay Bridge.
Released in December 2009 by McSweeney's, the publishing house founded by Eggers, Panorama sought to assert print's importance in an increasingly internet-driven news business.
The newspaper, fully printed in color and with its newspaper measuring 15 inches by 22 inches, was "huge and luxurious," allowing designers to creatively realize the format's potential, according to McSweeney's press release.
Phil Bronstein, editor-at-large of the San Francisco Chronicle, and Panorama contributing editor Oscar Villalon will join Eggers to talk about why they believe the publication could be a model for the future of the newspaper industry in McKenna Theater at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The event is co-sponsored by the SF State Journalism Department and City Arts & Lectures.
