Way back in October, the KPL bookclub read Mindscan by Robert J. Sawyer, and he came to our bookclub to speak about it. I had heard Sawyer speak once before since his Hominids was chosen for One Book One Community in 2005.
Mindscan delves into the question of what makes us human and centres around consciousness – what it is, how it works, why its so special to us. Even now, months after reading it, I still wonder about it all. During the book club, Sawyer talked over an hour to all of us and I’m sure he would’ve stayed and talked longer if many of us didn’t have plans already!
