    I would have loved to have seen Mr Frank Cottrell Boyce ‘singing, dancing and laughing’ but I live just a little bit too far away in Birmingham.
    If you are ever in the West Midlands or Birmingham, please let us know – they have a smashing Waterstones in Birmingham, which may be a listed building, so it is all the more worth travelling for!
    I have never read anything by you but I attend a ‘Make Friends With A Book’ group and it is being read aloud together. I can honestly say that I have never come across a book that could be so funny and poignant at the same time – it is a very popular choice for our group as a first read aloud! It would be great to hear you read your own work! Thank you for your time, Livvy(volunteer helper at MFWAB at Smethwick Library) Tel 07890 317479

      Thank you very much for your kind words of support.

      Frank Cottrell Boyce is a great friend to The Reader Organisation. He has written a book especially for TRO’s ‘Our Reads’ initiative. This will be launched in MArch 2011, on World Book Day so expect to see a lot of Frank at that time.
