I've just returned from a wonderful trip to France to promote my newest title, Cache Cache (French) or Hide and Seek (English). I started in Paris, where I was the guest of my French publisher, Albin Michel. I signed and held pop-up workshops at two Paris bookstores, Chantelivre and Space 104. I then went on to the main Paris event, the exhibition and signing at La Boutique du Livre Animé, as the guest of Jacques Desse. At this signing, I had the honor of meeting a rising star in the world of pop-up, Marion Bataille, the author of ABC3D.

Next, I traveled by high speed train to Marseille, where I was the guest of Librairie Imbernon, and the public library BMVR Alcazar. In Marseille, I had the opportunity to stay at the Unite d'Habitation Le Corbusier. This is one of Le Corbusier's most famous buildings and a fascinating example of modernist architecture. I signed books at Librairie Imbernon, which is the bookstore in Unite d'Habitation Le Corbusier, and attended the exhibition of my work and the work of French artist Phillipe UG at Alcazar.
It appears that pop-up is very popular in France at the moment, which makes me very happy.
