A first for Canadian publishing - Random House of Canada discovers a novel
way to bring authors and readers together

TORONTO, Oct. 28 /CNW/ - Beloved, international bestselling author, Lori Lansens joins fans across Canada for her only Canadian event.

On November 3, from 6 to 7 PM, Random House of Canada invites avid readers to join a unique interactive live-streamed video event from the comfort of their computers with Lansens, who will read from her book and chat with readers about her recently published book, The wife's Tale, from her computer in California.

"Live online video now offers us powerful, new ways to connect with and engage with book readers," says Lisa Charters, Senior Vice President, Director, Digital Marketing at Random House of Canada. "Up until recently, most live video streaming or webcasting has pretty much been one-way. Our online live video event will be highly interactive with multi-view video streaming that will connect author Lori Lansens in California with readers from across Canada and with participants at a private VIP event in Toronto."

Published in September to great critical acclaim, THE WIFE'S TALE is a vivid exploration of a woman taking small, courageous steps towards her authentic self for the first time in her life.
