Noted author and columnist Kurt Andersen believes that the end of the printed page is near. “The readability of electronic ink is getting good enough that the next stage of the beginning of the end is for paper magazines,” he says. Anderson is author of Heyday, a New York Times best seller and winner of the 2007 Langum Prize in American Historical Fiction, as well as Turn of the Century, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. He is host and co-creator of the Peabody Award-winning public radio program Studio 360, a regular contributor to New York magazine and Vanity Fair, an editor-at-large for Random House and a co-founder of the Very Short List e-newsletter. Co-founder of Spy magazine and Inside.com, Andersen is currently writing a musical about Harry Houdini and is also Art Center College of Design’s current Visionary in Residence.
