The Launch for Robert J. Sawyer's WATCH

On March 31, 2010, I had the distinct pleasure of hosting Robert J. Sawyer's launch for WATCH at Titles Bookstore McMaster University.

We not only pushed the launch live to the internet via our MACBookstore ustream feed, but we also recorded most of the event so we could continue to share the thrill it was for us to have Rob kick off his latest cross-Canada book tour in our store.

That being said, I'm delighted to be able to share the event via the following three videos, which include Rob talking a bit about the WWW trilogy then setting up a scene from WATCH that he reads from.

Here is PART ONE which runs about 7 minutes.

Here is PART TWO which runs just under 7 minutes.

Here is PART THREE which is the setup and reading of a scene from the novel WATCH and which runs just under 9 minutes.

Rob answered questions from the audience for another half an hour after this talk and reading. I'm working on getting those clips compiled to share in a similar fashion.

However, as cool as it is to watch this recorded event, if you get a chance to see Rob Sawyer in person, do take it. He is a captivating and engaging speaker sure to delight audiences wherever he roams.
