Ray’s ‘Recommends’ in Blackwell’s Oxford

Thank you to staff at both Blackwells and Waterstones in Oxford for inviting me over to sign their respective stocks of The Fountain in the Forest this weekend. Waterstones staff including Chris and Katie have been very supportive of the novel, including on Instagram (and I love this photo that they posted, which I have now learned was taken amidst the ivy in St Mary Magdalen’s churchyard over the road).

I was also honoured that The Fountain in the Forest is one of bookseller Ray’s ‘Recommends’ in Blackwells – I love the succinctness of his review!

There is also talk of an event at the Oxford Waterstones, so watch this space for info.

In the meantime, the team at Faber have produced this banner for our February dates:
