Wordfest's Imagine On Air presents #1 Canadian bestselling astronaut Chris Hadfield and his space-based thriller, The Apollo Murders. The one-hour live conversation, hosted by author and journalist Jim Brown, will start at 7:00 PM MT. (The pre-show will begin at 6:50 PM.) There will be an opportunity to ask questions and you can email them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are $36 (plus tax) and include your ticket, a signed* copy of The Apollo Murders (*bookplates), and shipping in Canada.
The official publication date for The Apollo Murders is Oct. 12, at which point Penguin Random House Canada can begin shipping the books – as soon as they process your order, they will send you a confirmation email with tracking information. Customers who place their orders by Oct. 14 should receive their book before the event on Oct. 21. Orders to rural and remote addresses might take a few days longer.
You'll also receive an email reminder the day before the show, as well as Wordfest's unique Digital Doggie Bag the day after with links and extras inspired by the conversation. If you are unable to watch live or want to watch again, the show will be available on demand at Wordfest.com until midnight Nov. 21.
Note: If you have already purchased a hardcover or audio version of The Apollo Murders – or live outside of Canada – and would like to experience this show, please contact us at email@example.com.
