In August I’ll be at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and am looking forward to my presentations and school visits and spending time with my UK friends — and just hanging out in the glorious and beautiful city of Edinburgh and country of Scotland, where I lived as a child.

And here’s a partial schedule of events. Slangevar!
