Dr. Wright will discuss the creation and publication process of his ebook, "David, King of Israel, and Caleb in Biblical Memory" with Cambridge University Press. In a special agreement with the press, he produced, on his own, a "fully enhanced" ebook version of the volume. This version, which is available on Apple iBooks, features videos, images, maps, and a new system of footnotes. The Chronicle of Higher Education calls his work "a game-changer for the humanities." In this talk, Dr. Wright will share insights from his experience of making this book and show how easy it is to "do it yourself.”
