And just like that I started making plans to visit Berlin, a city I’ve wanted to go to for years. There, I’ll be doing plenty of nerdy museum, science, history, art, and culture research. Plus visiting old and new friends who live there. Why have I waited so long to make this trip? Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, I can’t wait to see you. Have you been to Berlin? Give me all your tips and recommendations!
Germany, Emerson may be seated next to you on your commute some day soon. I just finished a fun video interview for my book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, with the lovely sisters Davina and Samantha who run Books on the Run Germany, the German chapter of Books on the Move Global. They interview authors and run a mobile library in Germany. For the mobile library, they leave books on the public transit system in Germany for people to find, read, and then return to any German public transit system for others to find and read.
My book will be part of their transit program next month. Our video interview as well as a separate video of me reading a passage of the book will all be available soon. Stay tuned!
