Books and journal launch


Three of my books and the new journal I edit are going to be launched today at 5.30pm - Code/Space: Software and Everyday Life, The Map Reader, Key Thinkers on Space and Place (2nd Ed) and Dialogues in Human Geography. I'm not a great fan of book launches; they can be a bit scyophantic and uncomfortable and I always feel oddly out of place at them. That's why I've decided to bundle these up into one gig. Great for me, but I forgot about the person launching them - Audrey Kobayashi, who's the incoming President of the Association of American Geographers - who has been busy reading them all. Having to read one book for a launch is a big enough ask. Reading four deserves a medal. We'll see how it goes. I better get composing my list of thank-yous.
