Got a question about Switzerland? Want your book signed? Then come and meet me in London. From previous posts you might already know that I will be at the House of Switzerland in central London from Friday and all during the Olympics. I’ll be there to show the lighter side of living in Switzerland, with various events, presentations and interviews during the 24 days.
So that you can have a chance to come and ask me questions about Swiss life, bring your books along to be signed, or even buy the newest one, Swisscellany, the House has created some fixed ‘Meet the Author’ times over the next few weeks. All will take place on the Terrace (so I’m hoping that summer returns sometime soon) and be open to everyone. On each date, starting on Saturday, it will be from 2pm to 3pm:
- Saturday 21 July
- Wednesday 25 July
- Friday 27 July
- Monday 30 July
- Friday 3 August
- Tuesday 7 August
- Saturday 11 August
So feel free to come along to one of those, or to Swiss National Day in 1 August when there will be a whole day of entertainment on offer in the square outside the House. I use the word entertainment lightly as at 5pm I’m included in the programme on stage! We will even have a live video link to Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest railway station, which is celebrating its 100th birthday that day.
Until then, or if you can’t make it to the House of Switzerland at all, here’s the clip from Kulturplatz last week. It’s the regular culture progamme on SF1, the main Swiss German channel, and the current series of programmes is about ‘Switzerland in 100 Things’. I was asked to be part of it, so here’s me talking in German about red shoes, Toilet Ducks and chocolate. All the important Swiss things.
