Today’s lead story, a digest of the London Book Fair, notes that while organizers have managed to fill in the gaps of author readings, many trade panels and events have simply been canceled. And no one is trying to find a way to teleconference people in or to schedule online chats, which would seem logical and quite reasonable. Is there some reason that the LBF hasn’t taken this step? Would you participate in an virtual book fair if given the opportunity?
