The subject of the Guardian Debate at the Edinburgh International Book Festival is whether the internet and funding cuts will destroy cultural output

The threat posed to the future of culture by the government's cuts in funding to cultural organisations, the way the internet is changing our relationship with culture and whether or not our well-being is connected to culture are all being debated in The Guardian Debate: The Future of Culture at the Edinbugh International Book Festival on Sunday (21 August). The Guardian's literary editor Claire Armitstead will be joined by Billboard editor Robert Levine and novelist Sam Leith (pictured), who has written a related piece entitled Is This the End for Books? in The Guardian.

Do you think the internet is affecting our relationship to culture? And does it spell the end for books? Let us know your thoughts in Talkback.
