Top Canadian author Margaret Atwood will perform a transatlantic signing of her new novel from Scotland, with the aid of an internet autographing device.
The award-winning writer is in Dunfermline where she will read from her latest book Moral Disorder.
The event will be transmitted to Toronto in her home country where fans will have gathered as part of the city’s annual Word on the Street book and magazine festival.
Inspired after signing for a FedEx package, the LongPen allows writers to forsake the tried-and-true book tour and, theoretically, sign from anywhere in the world, including the comfort of their own homes. The author writes on a tablet and the signature is electronically transmitted to a robotic arm holding a pen that signs the book.
