What's the point of this again? I seem to have missed the email that 
sparked this.

If it's to get them to endorse something with a view towards protecting 
the public domain, and resisting the extension of copyright, forget it: 
Pierre Berton and Margaret Atwood are typical members of the CanLit 
gliterati: they don't mind pilfering the public domain, but God forbid 
their works should ever enter into it. Atwood is very clearly in favour 
of term extension; Pierre Berton seems to be tacitly so for reasons I 
don't wish to disclose in public.
