Operation Oysterhood: 24 March

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A month since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Every day, I read the reports and look at the images and I still cannot grasp how this has become reality, how millions of people have to go through hell because of the insane visions of a psychopath. It makes me realise, not for the first time, that we need to learn how to prevent these people from accessing that kind of power. We need to learn from history, we also need to learn from our personal experiences. The one will follow from the other – the connection is obvious. I am writing about it.

We launched An Island at EB Cavendish tonight. I had the pleasure of interviewing Karen at the event. A wonderful evening of celebration.

Quite a few of Karavan Press titles were on display and it was a joy to see, to know that we made these beauties happen.

I delivered the author copies of our latest – The Other Me by Joy Watson – to Joy in the afternoon. Always a magical moment.

Karavan’s next stop: Open Book Festival :)

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Get vaccinated, please. Live.
