Meanwhile, the trip has morphed in a wonderful way… along with the book fair, I’ll now also be giving a talk about picture books to the School of Art and Communications at China Jiliang University in Hangzhou, arranged by a friend from my PhD days in Glasgow who is now based in Hangzhou, and I’ll be catching up with the folks from Storyland who interviewed me for their blog a few years ago. That was arranged by another friend from my PhD days who is based in Shanghai. The really great thing about that is Storyland is a comparable to our Margaret Wise Brown Children’s Book Museum that has received approval for fundraising, which I will have a hand in helping establish; so, this has turned into a very important trip, all said!
I’m so excited about being in China – but nervous about getting to China. It’s a 12-hour time difference! OMG! But I’ve reserved a “nap-cab” in Munich where I have a 9-hour layover – so wish me luck!!! And, of course, I'll blog all about it - so stay tuned!
