>Not the fun kind . . . maybe the other fun kind?
Wednesday evening Martha and I will be speaking and signing A Family of Readers at Porter Square Books in Cambridge. 7:00 PM. Do come!
And on Friday, to my complete terror, I will be speaking at an event sponsored by the Beatrix Potter Society. (Terror, because too many cozies and BBC serials have led me to believe that meetings of literary societies always end in murder.) I will be speaking on the topic of “Beatrix, Bertha, and Me,” an invitation to hubris and murder if ever there was one. Thank God Lolly, who really does know her Beatrix and Bertha, will be there. Betsy Bray, the North American Liaison of the Society, has invited me to invite you. The talk is being held at the Cambridge Public Library main building (my first visit since their reopening) at 10:00 AM; if you would like to attend email Betsy: braybetsy at gmail dot com.
