Book launch on Wednesday 10th April at 6:30pm in Daunt Books Holland Park!

Dear All,

Just a quick reminder for those hoping to come to my book launch in London next Wednesday 10th April.

The launch is from 06:30 - 08:00 at Daunt Books in Holland Park.  There will be quick speeches from Tony Juniper and me at 06:45.  All most welcome. There will be wine and books on sale for 10 pounds.

The DC launch on the 4th was lovely and uplifting. 50 people came and there was a fun atmosphere.

The Astronomer Royal, Lord Martin Rees, also liked the book, having been sent it by one of my sponsors, Damon de Laszlo.  He wrote:

'I wanted to thank you for sending me the Edward Davey book -- really excellent and inspirational. The public has to be energised: only then will politicians feel they can do the right thing without losing votes!'

The launch of the Netflix series Our Planet is also fortuitous. It is an amazing achievement in its own right, and is set to be seen by hundreds of millions of people. The fact that its message coincides with my own -- and that I had the good fortune to interview David for the book -- will hopefully encourage people to buy the book if they see it in bookshops.

Which reminds me: please do as my sister is doing, which is to ask all your local bookshops to order and store copies.  This will help a great deal -- as will reviews on Amazon if possible: a prize for the first to do so!

Warmest wishes to you all, and in the hope of seeing a good number of you next Wednesday to celebrate our shared achievement!
