For over the past year, we've invited some of the most prominent and promising thinkers, artists, leaders, and personalities of our time to give talks and have discussions at Google about their recently published books. We call the series Authors@Google, and we've posted videos of many of our events online. And now, the program has grown out of our Mountain View headquarters to include seven U.S. offices as well as our London and Dublin offices.
In addition, we've just added our most important location yet: an online home at google.com/talks/authors with a video archive of our events on YouTube. Just this year, we've hosted a great variety of authors, including Martin Amis, Strobe Talbott, Bob & Lee Woodruff, Jonathan Lethem, Don Tapscott, Senator Hillary Clinton, and Carly Fiorina. The subjects of their talks range from literary fiction to science fiction, sociology to technology, politics to business.
We're delighted to share our digital library of events with you, and will continue adding to it. We hope you'll bookmark this page and check back often.
Finally, this weekend, April 28 and 29, the Authors@Google team will be exhibiting on the UCLA campus at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books -- the largest book-related event in the U.S. If you're in the area, do stop by, say hello, and browse books and videos from some of our previous events.
