There are book lovers everywhere at Google, not just on the Book Search team. In fact, a diverse group of Googlers -- from engineering, product management, marketing, operations and recruiting -- regularly volunteers to arrange author visits to the Google campus, inviting them to discuss their latest works and ideas. We affectionately call it Authors@Google, and it has been so popular at our Mountain View headquarters that we’ve expanded it to our New York and Santa Monica offices.
But Authors@Google isn’t just for Googlers. With the help of Google Video, we're able to share many of these events with book lovers around the world. Interested in hearing thoughts from Seth Godin or John Battelle? Curious about what Nobel Prize winner Dr. James Watson has been studying recently? These authors and many others are just a few clicks away. Take a look at the current list of videos, and be sure to check back, too -- we're always adding more.
