Signings? Where?

Nation is a terrific book and I am really pleased to have got hold of a proof, even more pleased to get it and a hardback signed!

Please say Terry is coming to East Anglia.

:D

Aha - found it! That'll teach me for not reading the homepage!

Now - Hayling Island or Piccadilly?

I guess Piccadilly might mean the shop might remain open after 5pm, and more chance of getting into the signing queue as early as possible before 2pm...

I like the sound of the special edition - and full marks to Random House and Waterstones for the idea of going to the smallest island bookshop and biggest outlet in Europe for the launch - what a great idea.

I quite like Hayling Island. The grandparents of a friend of mine had a caravan there and we had some fun times holidaying there.

It seems that Terry is doing a signing in Southport as well. :)

I am reliably informed that it used to be OK, esp. for kids, but it's a bit down at heel nowadays, IMO.

They were obviously so excited that Terry is coming they made an error. :lol:

I could be wrong, but think that should read'"Terry will sign copies of his books Nation and The Folklore Of Discworld at Broadhurst’s on Thursday, October 2nd from 4pm “until he runs out of steam.” :roll:
