Sunday, October 2nd, 2011. I am home again after an absolutely terrific tour abroad, including a launch party hosted by the marvelous Clerkenwell Tales in London. It was such a treat to get to meet the owner, Peter Ho–it is truly a place “run by booklovers, for booklovers.”
After London, I headed off to South Africa, including a stop in Johannesburg, where I had a terrific dinner with some wonderful managers of Exclusive Books shops. Then on to Cape Town and the Open Book Festival, which was fabulous. So many great events and people, not to mention the gorgeous location. Also, I tasted my first paw-paw.
