A visit from the author

The author, Brian Panhuyzen, will visit your book club – for free. If you are located in the Greater Toronto Area, he will come to your club to talk about the book, answer questions, and read from the novel and other work.

And if you’re far from Toronto, Brian will join your club anywhere in the world via a Skype video chat. Bring him right into your livingroom or pub with nothing more than a laptop, a webcam, and an Internet connection.

And if you’re feeling especially adventurous, Brian will visit your club in person, anywhere in the world. All you pay is travel and accommodations, and Brian will spend up to four hours with your book club, generously discussing the processes or writing and publishing in the 21st century. It could be the ultimate gift for the reader in your life – a visit from a real-life author.
