Wednesday 4th July: Bookmatch
Jardine Cafe and Bistro [with Wivenhoe Bookshop].
I'll be guest author here, so I'll be chatting about 'Weird Things...' and signing books, but there's lots of other cool stuff going on too.
Thursday 5th July: Coleford Festival of Words. Forest Bookshop. 2:30pm.
Talk, acting out of 'Weird Things...' and book signing.
Saturday 7th July: Alice's Day.
It's a massive Alice in Wonderland celebration in Oxford on the 7th of July. There are lots of amazing things happening. I'll be at Blackwell's for part of the day, taking it in turns with booksellers and other authors to read out the whole of 'Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass.' So, stop by for a listen, and for all other Alice related activities. I'll be able to sign copies of 'Weird Things...' there, too. Hurray!
[Alice is my favourite book, ever. Miles and I make a good Alice & Mad Hatter ;)]
So, yes. I hope that some of you will be able to make one of these! x

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
