Eichmann: The Savage Truth – Comer Clarke

Two days ago was the 9th November. It was the 81st anniversary of Kristallnacht or the Night of Shattered Glass. Today is Remembrance Day, a time when we celebrate the end of WWI. It seems fitting to talk about a book showing us the evil that was Adolf Eichmann. Kristallnacht was government sanctioned violence against […]

LA Public Library 2019

I promised the LA Public Library and so here we are. Lots more photos than normal because it was awesome. I had to take this photo. Not for the atmospheric effect of the sun but because the metalwork was so beautiful. I had heard of these Short Story Dispensers but never seen one in reality. […]

The Last Book Store LA 2019

I was positive this would be my last travel post and next week I’d move back to talking about individual books. I made the mistake of looking at my photos for LA and discovered there are far, far too many for one article. LA is an amazing place. Don’t ignore La Brea Tar Pit, make […]

Washington 2019

Washington DC is such an amazing place. You can spend weeks there just visiting museums. Last time we visited there it was the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s historic speech. We didn’t realise until later that day otherwise we would have been with the masses. This time it was only a couple of months […]

Virginia 2019

Visiting a nephew in Virginia and the family took us to a library. I think it’s the John Musante Porter Memorial Branch. If you’re ever there you should go in have a wander. I got very excited and had fun. Saw this drop off place in the carpark. I’ve never seen a drop off place […]

Baltimore 2019

Here we are in Baltimore. Staying with family is great. They have small children and a good routine. We didn’t interrupt this routine, instead visited the library with them. They went for story time so we got to join in the fun. And it was fun! It’s been a long time since story time at […]

Cleveland 2019

I loved Cleveland. This is where the conference was held. The organisers had booked out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for us for one night. Needless to say we went and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. I’ve not included any photos of it here but I have plenty. The exhibitions included the 50th anniversary of […]

Toronto 2019

As you can see from the gallery we did some interesting things in Toronto. Not book shops or libraries for a change. We went to Toronto specially to be close to Niagara Falls. I’ll put some photos up on Instagram in due course. A friend posted on Facebook a couple of months before we left […]
