Musings of a book event organiser
Sunday, 24 February 2013
I confess I had not heard of Jasper Fforde until Marilyn picked one of his books The Eyre Affair for our application to the organisers to take part in World Book Night on Tues April 23 this year. Now that I have heard of him, I am absolutely delighted that we are going to promote one his funny, imaginative books and with any luck some of his merchandise - see http://www.jasperfforde.com/index2.html for more details. Fforde appears to be a one-man whirlwind of off-the-wall ideas, including a range of T-shirts bearing the legend 'Don't mess with me: I'm a librarian'. Perfect gifts for our Russian visitors from the All-Union State Library of Foreign Literature (VGBIL) in Moscow next week.
