Empire of the Word

8 December 2009 in Asham Award

A four-part documentary called ‘Empire of the Word’ is currently screening on TVO in Canada.  Made by Mark Johnston, it’s a look at the history and future of reading.  Chris Joseph and I participated in the fourth part, which will air on Wed 16 December; you can also view the parts online.

As well as the tv series, Nomad (Johnston’s production company) also commissioned an online game to take place while the series is being screened. While I was in Toronto for IFOA, I did a little video interview with them for the game website, and that video is available to view now.  Click here then click on the tab ‘Authors on Freedom of Speech’.  My hair’s a mess, but it’s okay otherwise!
