Wednesday, September 14th. A wonderful day amidst the beautiful stone buildings and green countryside of Edinburgh. Started the day off with a great conversation with the lovely woman behind Cornflower Books. I love her elegant and thoughtful writing about all things literary–definitely a must visit for book lovers. She is currently offering a drawing for a free signed copy of The Song of Achilles.
Next up was a signing at the Main Street Trading Company, an award-winning bookshop, cafe and more, out in the Scottish Borders, run by the wonderful Rosamund and her husband Bill. It is a welcoming, sunny bookworm’s dream–If you are ever in the area, definitely drop by.
Last, but not least, a signing at Waterstones on George Street in Edinburgh, organized by the terrific Sarah and Colin. I had the pleasure of talking Classics with Dr. Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Senior Lecturer at Edinburgh University, and an expert on modern adaptations of Classical works. I signed a few stock copies as well, so if you are looking for a signed edition, George Street Waterstones is where to get them!
