I'm off for my first-ever overseas book tour for the UK edition of Wicked Plants, published by Timber UK. As of this writing the details are still being firmed up, so please do check with the venue before you book your plane ticket and fly to London.
Or–you know. Get on the tube or whatever.
The UK edition is pretty similar to the US, except that they changed the subtitle, what with Lincoln's mother not being as meaningful to the UK audience, and I think we tweaked a few things in the introduction. Otherwise, it was a pretty global book already, so I think it'll work out fine in the UK market.
Anyway, here's what I know about the schedule so far–but definitely double-check and get starting times from the venues:
Tues Oct 26 – The Eden Project, Cornwall
Thurs Oct 28 – Chelsea Physic Garden
Thurs Oct 28- London Review Bookshop
Fri Oct 29 – Kew Gardens
Fri Oct 29 – Queens Park Books
Sat Oct 30 – Petersham Nurseries, Surrey, and The Garden Museum
Sun Oct 31 – RHS Wisley
