Book signing in Blackwell’s

I’m delighted to announce I’ll be reading from Johnny Mackintosh and the Spirit of London and signing copies in Oxford’s fabulous Blackwell’s bookshop on Tuesday 12th August (from 3pm). I’ll doubtless say a few words about Johnny before I start and I’ll try to think of an activity to bring along that I can give out to children, maybe with a prize at the end of it.

If anyone doesn’t know, Blackwell’s is the first UK building to make use of time lord technology – it’s a true Tardis. From the outside you’d think it had room for hardly any titles, but venture through the doors and you’ll discover the biggest bookshop in the city. This is partly due to one of the natural wonders of the bookselling world, the cavernous Norrington Room, which was in the Guinness Book of Records for a while for having the most books or sale in a single room, anywhere in the known universe. For aficionados of the book, it eventually lost its place to the Imperial Library on Melania at the very centre of the galaxy.

If you can’t make it down to Oxford, but would like to say hello and get your own signed copy of Johnny Mackintosh and the Spirit of London, you can find out where to meet me in future on the main booksite.
