Watson on Writing

Ken Rockburn, pictured below, is in conversation with Patrick Watson at the Spring Edition on the Ottawa International Writers Festival. Watson is clearly still sharp and continues to hone his writing craft as he discusses two of his latest books. The fact that he has spent most of the last 50 or so years in and around television didn't hurt his performance as his reading was quite lively.
Watson was, however, stumped at a question from Rockburn in coming up with the story about the guest that died on stage during an interview. Turns out that Rockburn was thinking about another book altogether, leaving Watson speechless trying to remember if this actually happened. Thankfully it did not.
