The former of these just called asking if we had lots of copies of Joan Aiken‘s book in stock…. Which has to be good news and is as good a time as any to mention an event we’re sending out invitations to (consider yourself served with an invitation):
Michael Dirda, Lizza Aiken, and Charles Schlessinger
Celebrate Joan Aiken’s Armitage Stories
Sunday, November 16th 1-3 pm
Books of Wonder
18 West 18th Street
New York, NY 10011
We will celebrate the publication of The Serial Garden with a conversation between Michael Dirda and Joan Aiken‘s daughter Lizza Aiken and Joan’s lovely and esteemed long-time US literary agent, Charles Schlessiger of Brandt & Hochman.
This event is free and readers of all ages are welcome.
