Coming up/talks this month/Thursday 14th and Wednesday 27th February

To my Song supporters... 

Song has gone forth steadily...and I'm grateful to you all for that. For buying Song, for reading Song, for sharing Song. Thank you. 

Meantime, I have a few (free) events coming up in London in case you are able to join. 

Firstly this week -- an alternative Valentine's Day: Voices of the Enslaved: Tales of Love and Longing with an incredible line-up on either side of me

Then at the end of the month, in conversation with the brilliant writer, academic and one of the greatest of supporters of BAME artists, Bernardine Evaristo -- at Brunel Unvierstiy, where she teaches.

And -- Song is in Vanity Fair this month (the Hollywood issue, dated March), which happens to be the same issue as one of my bursts of travel -- 25 pages of ravishing destinations, including the launch of my new Vanity Fair Changing Your Mind travel awards. Do pick up a copy. 

Plus, catching up with other press... 

Here, I'm writing on Guyana in National Geographic Traveller:

And the five best books on displacement:

Finally, a podcast on how Song came about

Do hope to see some of you this month. 

Many thanks, as ever,
