If you're like me and lucky enough to be attending YALC in London this year, why not stop by and say hello? I'm notoriously bad at names and faces. I say the wrong thing in conversation. I never know whether to offer a hug or to shake people's hands or throw them over my shoulders and parade them around the hall while everybody claps and cheers. But I will try my best to be civil and I *do* want to meet you.
So, where, oh where will I be?
On Saturday, I'll be sharing the stage at 3pm with brilliant writers to discuss Myth, Magic and Fairytale. An hour later, exhilarated and sopping with sweat, we'll all be signing our books. I will sign anything, by the way. I am left-handed and willing to scrawl my name backwards if you request it.
On Sunday -- is that even a real day? Who knew? -- I'll be hanging around. I'm not sure where yet, but I'll be available for Christenings, Bar Mitzvahs or coffee. What could possibly go wrong?
