Book look

Remember this?

I'm delighted to announce that Joanna Czechowska's book, The Black Madonna of Derby, is going to be launched at my fave indie bookshop at an event on Thursday 30th October.

And just to show to what extent this all represents different strands of my life weaving together, there will be another launch event on 28th November as part of the Reading Connects strategy in FB's school.
Joanna's book is perfect for this purpose as it's available in both English and Polish versions and deals with the ramifications of balancing two cultures.

So to sum up: that's a woman in my writers' group, holding one event at a shop I love and where my own book launches were held, and another at the school my son attends, as part of a strategy I'm active in supporting, for a book I helped edit.

Doncha just love it when a plan comes together?
