Important update on Waterloo Wake event

An important update on the Robert J. Sawyer event for Wake at the Waterloo Entertainment Centre in Waterloo, Ontario, on Thursday, May 21, at 7:30. I just learned this myself (I was not involved in the discussions between the bookseller and my publisher):

Waterloo's venerable bookshop Words Worth Books is sponsoring this event, and paying the rental fee on the Waterloo Entertainment Centre.

The bookstore's policy is to let people in for free who have bought the book (either at the start of the event, or in advance at Words Worth), and to charge $10 to those who just want to attend but not buy the book from Words Worth. (As you can see, they do this for most of their out-of-store events.)

I apologize for the inconvenience, and hope people will still come out for what I'm sure will be a great evening.

Words Worth Books is a fantastic independent bookstore in Waterloo that I dearly miss since moving to California.

While the admission fee policy for this event may seem odd or annoying, I encourage RJS fans to take this opportunity not only to enjoy his launch of Wake, but also support a dying breed of independent local booksellers.
