Book launch in Cambridge

Do you live anywhere near Cambridge (UK)? Come join us for the official book launch on November 28, to chat with the authors and pick up a copy of the book if you don’t have one yet. Even though not all of the seventeen authors will be there (the ones who’d have to travel halfway around the world will not), this might still be your only chance to see such a large number of our authors gathered in one place, so don’t miss this unique opportunity!

Everyone is welcome, so tell your friends! Our official Facebook event page can…
