The event was held last night at Rosewater, an elegant restaurant in Toronto, where they served delicious hors d'oeuvres and drinks from the bar. Each author was given an opportunity to speak about their book. It was really different to have a non-fiction author included in the bunch. As Jeff Rubin was speaking about The Carbon Bubble, I felt as though I was listening to an economics lecture. Jeff spoke about the financial security of Canadians and the country's economic future. This is something I don't have much knowledge in, but this presentation has definitely peaked my interest.
During Giles Blunt's introduction of The Hesitation Cut, he spoke about his trip to a monastery in New York state where he immersed himself in the monks' lifestyle. This first hand experienced helped him create his lead character, Brother William.
Thank you to each of the authors and the Random House Canada team for a fun and entertaining evening!
