One of the highlights of BookExpo America is programming the annual 7x20x21 panel with my friend Ami Greko. (Past presenters include Jennifer Egan, Clay Shirky, Robin Sloan, Nate Silver, and many others; the 2013 lineup is just as exciting.) Each presenter gets 7 minutes, 20 slides max., and each slide advances automatically every 21 seconds. Then we grab a drink.
This year’s stellar roster includes:
- Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian
- RapGenius co-founder Ilan Zechory
- Digital magazine impresarios David Jacobs and Blake Eskin of 29th Street Publishing
- Readmill founder Henrik Berggren
- Psychologist Jesse Bering, author of Why Is the Penis Shaped Liked That? and Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us
- Kickstarter‘s Stephanie Pereira
Set your calendars for Thursday, May 30th, 3:30-4:30pm at BEA’s Downtown Stage.
Hope to see you there!
