Alison E. Smith:
Darren’s book launch was so lovely: intimate, engaging, big-hearted.

The book launch was a marvellous success. Wonderful readings by Alice Burdick and Alison Smith and terrific musical performance by Jim Henman. Some photos here. Missing Alison as she took most of these, so if anyone has one of her reading let me know and I’ll post it.
Me, and Mom and Dad. Thanks guys!
Someone at the launch sent Jim a Facebook friend request. He’s looking for the culprit.
