Diana's UK tour dates


Four days and counting until the January 7th release of the hardcover edition of AN ECHO IN THE BONE in the UK!

Diana Gabaldon has posted detailed information about her upcoming UK book-tour on her blog. Dates of the tour are January 14-20.

It seems as though she's hardly had time to recover from the last book-tour, but as Diana pointed out when I commented on this on Compuserve the other day, it's only a week this time, not two full months!

As part of this tour, Diana will be speaking at Sheffield-Hallam University, where they are showing an exhibit of the work of 19th century artist Godfrey Sykes, who also happens to be Diana's great-great-grandfather. You can see more about Godfrey Sykes and his Minerva Frieze here (be sure to watch the video, which I thought was very interesting). Diana has talked about her famous ancestor on Compuserve, here.

Please spread the word to anyone you know in the UK who might be interested.

I liked the video and I have added it to my things to see when I (hopefully) travel to England/Scotland within the next two years. Also I wanted to add that I really enjoy your site and all the work you do collating all the Outlander information. Thanks!
