I'm Off To London to See the Queen!

When you read this know I'm gone, off to London for the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival. While I'm in London I'll be attending Sue Guiney's launch for her latest book of poetry. I'll also be meeting in the flesh two of my online friends: Vanessa Gebbie, a fantastic, award winning writer who I worked with on the One World book and short story queen, Tania Hershman. Very excited about this!

My talk is on Saturday at noon and I'd so love to meet any of you who have the chance to attend.

Talk when I get back...wish me luck in the BIG city!

Dear Lauri,
Jackie from Uganda here. It was a pleasure to meet you I'm still savouring the 2 books you gave me (yippi!!).
Cant wait to get myself a copy of the anthology you read from.

Thanks for all of your good wishes guys! I'm back and trying to get myself sorted.

Yes Jackie it was nice to meet you, I will definitely check out your blog. The anthology I read from is The Bed Book of Short Stories published by Modjaji Books. I understand someone saw it for sale at a bookshop on Trafalgar Square, not sure which one.
