It was my first visit to Norway, and I have to say that Oslo was just as beautiful as I thought it would be!! And though it was unbelievably cold (as witnessed by the photo below!), the people were so warm and friendly they totally made up for it!
View from the hotel room window!
The first event was a public interview at the House of Literature! My publisher, Anne, introduced me before Elin (aka Norwegian Book Girl) interviewed me!
Is this not the cutest book club ever??? And believe it or not, this was a purely candid moment!
I made a visit to the Ruskeloff school which was filmed for TV- I'll post the link as soon as I get it!
The students were amazing and asked such great questions--I had a wonderful time talking with them . . .
and signing their books!
After, we retreated to the teacher's lounge to continue the interview . . .
and then I headed over to do a bookstore
to do another interview with Elin - (I swear she's so good at this, she should get her own show!)
and of course sign more books!
Later, I had dinner with a group of amazing booksellers who won the Immortals window display contest!
And, this being Norway, we were anxious to show off our elegant, evening footwear (I'm in the middle!)
I mentioned it was cold, right???
And then I headed for Paris--pics coming soon!!
See you soon!
