Goodbye Sarajevo

As you probably know, I'm a journalist, and in Masterton, where I live and work, we have this awesome bookstore called Hedley's Booksellers, which has been there for over 100 years. David Hedley, the owner, always lets us know about authors coming to town, as they get a lot of them because he's really passionate about what he does and always pushes to get these great authors into the store. So at the Wairarapa Times-Age, I'm the "author interviewer", simply because nobody else is really interested and I obviously LOVE books.

My latest interview was with Atka Reid and Hana Schofield, survivors of the Bosnian war, and was so, so interesting - authors are all so lovely.

The story is here on the Wairarapa Times-Age website.

I'm also reading the book myself - David gave me a reading copy to help with my story, but he hasn't asked for it back yet and I'm hooked after the first chapter, so I'm going to keep reading until he asks for it back... so watch this space for a review.
