The Lit & Phil

Cancelled – Elaine Kasket

Reboot

Dr Elaine Kasket, distinguished cyberpsychologist and author of Reboot: Reclaiming Your Life in a Tech-Obsessed World, brings her innovative, interactive, and thought-provoking Reboot quiz show to Books on Tyne. Blending her book’s insights with an engaging game-show format, Elaine invites you to question your narratives, interrogate your assumptions, and change your approach to technology, across the whole of your life span. Reboot examines life, relationships, and technological dilemmas and choices from ‘digital gestation’ to ‘digital afterlife,’ encompassing infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. By playing along with the quiz on your phone using Kahoot!, or even by joining as one of the analogue quiz-show contestants, you’ll find yourself considering your relationships with and through tech from fresh angles.

If you enjoy programmes like QI, The News Quiz, and Have I Got News for You, you’ll enjoy this opportunity to test your knowledge, challenge your misconceptions, and critically evaluate your responses to modern digital existence. The lucky winners will receive a free copy of Reboot, but plenty more will be available for sale on site.
