last of the summer wine....

As summer finally draws to a close here, I had the great privilege last week of meeting Ron Carlson, the celebrated American author/teacher who will be leading a workshop for us next July - our first foray into the world of top notch writing.

His novel, Five Skies, (Cinq Ciels)has just been translated and published in French and he is currently on on a pan France book signing tour.  As luck would have it his first port of call was Bordeaux at a beautiful vaulted bookshop in the heart of the old city called Machine a Lire.  


Just love this photographs of a traveling bookseller in Ghana.  Everyone, everywhere wanting books!  It warms the heart

And here is a brilliant idea, easy to make, for any of you who are planning to join Les  Soeurs Anglaises for one of our literary themed workshops next year:  An elasticated pencil pouch, with velcro clasp, to hold all your writing and drawing tools, in the most useful place ever.
