Book Lover's Ball a success

The Book Lover's Ball yesterday went fabulously, and was a first-class event from beginning to end -- valet parking, open bar, amazing food, the works. They'd been hoping to sell at least 200 tickets at Cdn$350 a pop, but actually sold 410. Besides the authors (including Margaret Atwood and Peter C. Newman), notables on hand included Adrienne Clarkson (former Governor-General of Canada), Bob Rae (former premier of Ontario) David Miller (current mayor of Toronto), David Crombie (former mayor of Toronto), Seamus O'Reagan (co-host of Canada A.M.), and Gord Martineau (anchor of CityPluse News).

Everybody sitting at my table got a free hardcover copy of Mindscan, courtesy of H.B. Fenn and Company, Tor's Canadian distributor.
