Another day, another book launch. The librarian had influenced a move to Saturday morning, assuring me that it was always buzzing on that day and that swarms would fly in and settle. Alas, this was not to bee. The swarms stayed in their hives, and the few that flew in were, yet again, not in a buying mood. I suspect we are at the wrong end of town.
Added to which, I found that the volume of sound in the video introducing author Annemarie Luck may have seemed fine at home, but no amount of jacking up of the speakers could make it properly audible in the actual venue.
So, I will have to repeat the exercise, but properly advertised now that constantly changing dates are not likely to sabotage my efforts in that direction. This is a lovely read, and needs to be appreciated as such.
If at first they don’t suck seed, keep introducing better canaries until they do . . .
