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.
