Special NIGHT MUSIC: Nocturnes 2 Bulletin—Dublin Schedule Change!
Sorry to trouble you, but today, on the Irish/UK publication date of NIGHT MUSIC: Nocturnes 2
, I have important news for Dublin readers (and some that may be of interest to others elsewhere). The welcome success of the Irish team
in the Rugby World Cup—long may it continue, from my mouth to God's ears, etc.—means that the time of the Dublin signing on Sunday, October 18th at Dubray Books
will have to be delayed slightly. It will now take place at 4:00 p.m.
instead of 3:00 p.m., to give people time to get into Dubray, Grafton Street. If you can't make it due to reasons of joy/sadness, Dubray will take an order for you and hold it at the store until you've recovered yourself.
For any Americans who may be unfamiliar with rugby, it's like American football without all the namby-pamby, Little-Johnny-Bruises-Easily, "Does mummy know you're out?" protective clothing. I hope that helps.
One Last US Appearance
New Englanders have one last chance to get your copies of A SONG OF SHADOWS
and NIGHT MUSIC: Nocturnes 2
signed, with its companion CD and/or packet of art postcards. That final event will be tomorrow night, Friday, October 16, at 6:00 p.m.
at Longfellow Books
in Portland, ME. Longfellow will take your order for an inscribed book and ship it anywhere in the world, as will the other stores I visited on my very short U.S. tour
