Excitement is building in my little south London flat. It’s now less than two weeks until the publication of The World Between Two Covers: Reading the Globe, the US edition of my book inspired by my year-long journey through a book from every country.
In nine days’ time, Steve and I will be getting on a plane bound for New York, ready for publication day on May 4. It’ll be the first time I’ve been back to the city since January 2012, when the photo at the top of this blog was taken on Steeplechase pier, Coney Island (I wish I could remember which book I was reading then).
While we’re in New York, I’ll be meeting many of the team at Liveright/Norton who’ve been working so hard to bring my writing to the US. I’ll also be doing a couple of events: one at WORD in Brooklyn on Saturday May 2 at 1.30pm (the store will be celebrating Independent Bookstore Day, so there’ll be lots of things going on) and one at Book Culture in Manhattan on Tuesday May 5 (time TBC).
If you’re in New York that week, it’d be lovely to see you there. In the meantime, you can find the US version of my author film, explaining some of the ideas behind the book, above. Not long to go now…
Film by vloop.
I already have the book. I received it the same day it was released in the UK> However, US has other big cities as well. You should not limit your US visit with NYC only
Oh wonderful, thanks BT. Yes, I would love to visit lots of your other great US cities (several of which I have very fond memories of visiting as a student) with the book. Hopefully one day soon!
I want to read this!

After the US, you’ll conquer the world:with masel!
Ah, thanks Gottlieb
I’m looking forward to reading this book.
Congratulations, Ann! I look forward to reading your book. I will also mention your book to our public library in Illinois. It seems like a book that should be part of their collection, too. Continued success! ♡
Ooh, thanks Dawn. That would be great
