To get readers excited about new titles, web-savvy publishers have been releasing book trailers. This book trailer is a haunting introduction for the Douglas Coupland's Massey Lecture "Player One: What is to Become of Us". Coupland will be presenting Hour 1 of his novel ( the first fictional Massey Lecture ever ) the evening of Tuesday, October 12 at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts. This will give you a taste of what the night will be like:
On a less apocalyptic note, The Horse that Leaps Through Clouds by Eric Enno Tam has put out this cinematic appetizer. Tam has a beautiful website and will be in Vancouver Tuesday, September 21 at the VPL ( more info right here.)
I’d love to see more book trailers for local reads – what book would you want to see a trailer for?
