    Hey All...

    I hope everyone had fun at the Grape and Wine festival. Anyways... my ride to St. Catherines this weekend is a librarian at the Pelham library in Fonthill and was telling me that the author Robert J. Sawyer is going to be there this Tuesday at 7:30.

    I'm not sure if anyone here is a fan of his work or is interested in seeing / meeting a sci-fi author but I thought someone here might be interested. For more information check out the pdf poster availible through http://pelhamlibrary.on.ca/adults.php .

    Have fun!

    Sorry, I have to laugh about that for personal reasons. Some people here will know why.

    For everyone else, Bob is a great guy. Has a lot of interesting opinions and viewpoints.

    Definately go!

    He is a TERRIFIC author and is happy to talk to fans. I had the pleasure to talk to him briefly and get an autograph after listening to a book reading by him at T Trek this year.

    You're not gonna share with us at least the punchline? Way to keep people hanging... ;)

    John knows him somehow, but I forgot how. Something to do with the Silver Snail.

    Nope.

    Actually back in the mid to late 80's, Bob Sawyer and I hung around with mutual friends, so I usually met him a few times a year at house parties. So it took me by surprise when I saw him as a published author years later.

    So the reason why I tend to laugh, is seeing people react to Robert J Sawyer the author, when I just think of as Bob Sawyer, the guy that used to come out to Lloyd and Yvonne's parties.

    that's cool....

    Did anybody end up going? Apparently about 30 people showed up for which the author was apparently quite happy with. My librarian friend was wondering if anybody had suggestions to get more people out to these things.

    I'd suggest holding them on weekends....I know a few people who would have gone had it not been a Tuesday.
