A couple of generous reviews in today’s papers – Observer and Sunday Times. Which makes publication day seem very close. And there are two festivals lined up for talks. The first is one in Keswick in the Lake District, an area I hardly know at all and much look forward to visiting.
It’s the Ways With Words Festival and I am speaking as part of Women’s Day, 11th March.
The next is the Du Maurier Festivalin Fowey in May. Cornwall in May, when the weather is halfway decent is as beautiful as anywhere on the planet.
As I lived in Cornwall for many years, and the landscape feels like it is part of my DNA, returning is always a bitter-sweet experience, but Fowey will be irresistible. I am speaking on 14th May. There is such a wealth of material to talk about with Nancy’s story, and the whole process of writing the book that talking about it will be a joy – another advantage of non-fiction over fiction.
