I am back after a tour in France where I have visited bookshops and libraries. Voie aux chapitres in Lyon, Médiathèque la Passerelle in Bourg les Valence, Ma petite librairie in Bourgoin-Jallieu, La Maison Jaune in Neuville-sur-Saône and Librairie Luciole in Viennes. Motivated and generous bookshops, enthusiastic readers and visitors. In Bourg le Valence I met students having gotten Buster’s ears as part of their final examination – they had plenty of questions. I also received the readers’ prize Prix La Passerelle for that very book and got to know that the very same book had been granted yet another prize, Prix de l’Armitière. I am very happy and grateful.
