All and sundry, sundry and all (at least those who live within commuting distance of Newcastle upon Tyne) are invited to celebrate the launch of the fourth Poppy Denby book, The Cairo Brief, on Saturday 20th October, 4.15pm, Jesmond Library. I do hope to see some of you there!
If you’ve enjoyed getting to know Poppy Denby and her friends in The Jazz Files, you’ll be delighted to know that book 2, The Kill Fee, will be published on 16 September. There will be a launch party at Blackwell’s Bookshop, Percy Street, Newcastle, on Thursday 22 September, 6 – 7.30pm. If you are in the Newcastle area you are welcome to come to this free event. There’ll be free drinks and nibbles, live jazz and a reading from Poppy’s next adventure. For details of how to get to Blackwell’s,check out their website here
This year I shall not be wearing a feather boa as I do not want a repeat of the allergic reaction I had last year, the day before the Jazz Files launch, immortalised below by my cartoonist friend Chris Chris Bambrough.
