Another quiet weekend at Five Leaves Towers
Apart from the Derbyshire Readers Day mentioned earlier, there was: The Colin Ward and Childhood conference in Cambridge, well attended, excellent speakers, good programme, good booksales especially from our friends at Freedom Press. Up in Scotland Zoe Wicomb had a full house at the Aye Write Glasgow Book Festival, and was the guest at BBC Scotland's Book Cafe. The Scottish Daily Record gave Ray Banks' California an excellent review, while J David Simons talked at the Scottish Jewish Archives (shame the publicity was so late) and at the Edinburgh Jewish Literary Society. And we finished the weekend by finding a sponsor for a forthcoming big book on London fiction. And I cleaned my bedroom.
