Visit to Dorchester

August 23, 2009

I will be doing a reading, a signing and also answering questions with fellow Footprints author Kate Kelly at the Dorchester Waterstone’s, 45-46 South Street, Dorchester, this Thursday 27 August, starting at 7:30pm. Refreshments will be served, and questions about Herschel and Planck will be most welcome.

This will be the publisher’s first event at a UK bookshop. If we do well hopefully there’ll be more!

“Far into the future, intelligent beings from the stars discover the footprints and relics left behind by the inhabitants of earth on the Moon. As non-human archaeologists, they try to speculate what the long-since vanished humans were like.”
