Tyne Bridge Blues

I’m so sorry for all of those who made the effort to come to this Tuesday’s lunchtime session on ‘The Woman in White’ – despite leaving home at 11am, usually plenty of time, I got stuck in traffic for an hour on the Tyne Bridge and made it at 1.40pm by which time you’d all gone home!  I am so sorry and can’t apologise enough.  I hope you managed to carry on without me.

And thanks to all those who came on Tuesday evening – it was, as usual, a cracking discussion despite the slightly noisy input from our uninvited guests at the back of the room…  I’ll get the Living Room to put ‘Private Event’ on the door to deter any non-reading revellers.

Don’t forget that next month is Kachi Ozumba’s ‘The Shadow of a Smile’ (plenty of copies now available in Blackwells at last) and he’ll also be reading and discussing his book as part of the Hexham Book festival on April 27th at the Queen’s hall.

So see you all, no doubt gagging for some relief from the blanket election coverage, on May 4th and promise I won’t be late.
