What a lovely story!Stultus Saxum wrote:Very odd and small world:
I met with a friend yesterday having not seen her for a while. We got onto talking about books and, inevitably, Pterry's books (I introduced her to them about eleven years ago, but not to her taste, sadly). She then told me that she met him at the Tory conference as she was doing the event management. It was she that cued him onto and brought him off the stage (as Rob had gone into the auditorium, apparently). He asked that she do it specifically as he would remember her face.
She's being doing this type of thing for many years and heard countless speeches by umpteen (I've been told this is a big number) people. She said that Pterry's speech was the first that almost brought her to tears (and that he's a very nice man ).
