    This is a place where we will share information about forthcoming boOkmArks events, and you can post questions and engage in discussion about the topics covered. Each boOkmArks event will cover a subject related to OA books, and each will have the following structure:

    1) BLOG POST: there will be a blog post (usually by the speaker) up on our Site a week prior to the event.
    2) SUBMIT QUESTIONS: if you wish, you can submit questions, comments and responses on the post itself or in this discussion thread, for the speaker to address.
    3) EVENT: the speaker will attend a live online event to discuss the topic, hosted by the OABN. There will be a Q&A afterwards, when we will welcome questions from the floor and ask anything posted on the blog post or the boards before the event.

    If you’d like to propose a topic for a boOkmArks event (including in a language other than English) please email us at info@oabooksnetwork.org or drop a comment in this thread.

    The boOkmArks events are all listed in our Calendar too, and we’re working on a blog page to act as a list of forthcoming events and an archive of previous talks — so keep an eye out for that.
