Q. Briefly describe your products and services
KS. I’m the editor of "Bookmark Now: Writing in Unreaderly Times" (Basic Books, June 2005), a collection of essays by writers in their 20s and 30s that asserts and celebrates the continued relevance of reading, writing and literature in a media-saturated digital age. I also run the Virtual Book Tour (www.virtualbooktour.org), a booktour with weblogs as the tour stops and have a speaking/consulting practice (www.kevinsmokler.com) enabling artists and arts organizations to better use technology to reach new and diverse audiences.
