Alice in Wonderland and a Durban book fair featuring latest books by various authors – and my own books as well as those of others who have been published by P’kaboo – what connecting link could there be? The year 1865 provides one … (Do visit the link for a ‘moving’ journey down memory lane with the original Alice illustrations, by the way.)
As you will gather, Alice was launched in 1865, and in the same year Adams Booksellers came into being here. It has survived all the slings and arrows of outrageous (mis)fortune which have sunk so many family businesses, and is still going strong. Peter Adams gave a fascinating talk at the book fair today regarding the history of the company.
Of course, the final part of the link is that, very shortly, all my titles and the others in the stable will be available to buy or order from Adams outlets.
