Highlights from My Recent Book Launch and West Coast Tour
City of Immortals YouTube Channel). The official launch took place on Tuesday, October 29—which, appropriately enough, coincided with the week of All Souls’ Day. A record turnout of over 100 people attended my presentation, where Book Soup sold over 60 copies within 30 minutes! The book is also available online, as well as at many stores in the U.S., U.K., and France (see the full list on this page).
I subsequently embarked on a West Coast book tour, where I enjoyed reading the “Conversation with Colette” from City of Immortals at Books Inc. in Berkeley, California, with my sister Kathleen Campbell (a literata in her own right). Kathleen introduced me to the works of Colette when I was about eleven. Kathy had very sophisticated tastes for a 13-year-old and told me that Colette was the leading literary figure in France and had authored 50-odd novels, some of which were made into movies, including Gigi, directed by Vincent Minnelli and starring Maurice Chevalier and Leslie Caron. It was racy stuff for young girls!
