An Evening with Robert J. Sawyer

Thursday Mar 03 2016 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

In conversation with Struan Sinclair and signing Quantum Night (Viking Canada). Co-presented by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.

Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from twenty years previously—a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.

Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible—change human nature—before the entire world descends into darkness.

Robert J. Sawyer lives just outside of Toronto. He has won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novel of the Year, and the ABC TV series FlashForward was based on his Aurora Award-winning novel of the same name.

Struan Sinclair’s novels, short fiction, plays and new media projects have been widely anthologized and reprinted and have received critical acclaim and awards internationally. His works include Strange Comforts, Everything Breathed (Granta) and Automatic World (Doubleday/Anchor Books), as well as a forthcoming novel, short fiction collection and the interactive graphic novel Tomorrowless.
