Yikes! What happened to my myriad lovely literary events? Well, You know what happened.
As this baleful 2021 unfurls, there may be events to report. I hope so. It is the writer’s duty to have hope.
In the meantime, stay well. Read books. Oh yes – and maybe help me. In lockdown I’ve been writing a column for Telegraph Travel called WORDSEARCH. Each column pairs a writer and a place. So far I’ve done:
Eudora Welty’s Mississippi Delta
Tete-Michel Kpomassie’s Greenland
James Baldwin’s Harlem
Dorothy Carrington’s Corsica
Octavia Butler’s LA
Nicolas Bouvier’s Sri Lanka
