Attention Anglophiles in New York: A Yank Back to England LIVE!

If you’re in the New York area and you’ve read the brilliant book A Yank Back to England – then this will interest you greatly. They’ve got a couple promotional events going on.

Here are the details:

MARCH 26 & 28
Barnes & Noble at Lincoln Triangle (Broadway & 66)
7:30 PM Friday, March 26th
Professional actors join author Denis Lipman for a dramatic
presentation of A Yank Back to England, a humorous travel memoir of
one expat’s rediscovery of his former homeland. Discover why the
English eccentricities Americans find so endearing drive the author up
the wall—at least at first—and remind him of the class system, the
stoic acceptance of things, and the cultural quirks that drove him
from England in the first place.
Plus, don’t miss a chance to win one of three fish & chip dinners for
two at the ChipShop!
Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant
14 East 47th Street (between Madison and 5th)
2-4 PM, Sunday March 28th
The Daughters of the British Empire invite you to a afternoon of
nibbles, drinkies, and humour with author Denis Lipman and his
American family—and a raffle! Tickets are $30, with all profits
benefiting the Victoria Home. For more info & reservations, call Vicki
Downey (646) 220 2309 or email
If I was in New York I’d certainly make it a point to go to both!

    Thanks Jonathan! This is going to be fun, hope some of your readers can make it! And if you come on Friday, do pop into the cafe on the 4th floor of B&N and say hi to poor Prodigal Wife–she’ll be there from 6:30 on while I whip the actors into shape (just kidding, they’re all very talented)!
