I am meeting Michael! by edith on 11 October 2007 4:18pm
 
Hi everyone,

Michael Palin is doing a book signing in Reading on the 24th October at WH Smith's from 12.30pm. I was just wondering if anyone from here is going or going to one near them?

Thanks Edith. I live in Reading but unfortunately I am at work in Oxford at that time. Maybe my wife can go along and say hi to our Mike and get a book signed.

Met Michael, very briefly in Waterstones East Kilbride on the 15th Oct. It was all rather rushed along by the Waterstones staff which is unfortunate but with the amount of people that turned up for the book signing I suppose it's just as well. I did force a brief hand shake from him though and asked about another future series to which he replied he was not sure of...Nice meeting you anyway Mr Palin!

Well i met the man himself yesterday and it was great. I was 12th but i had turned up over an hour early to make sure i got to see him. They were only letting 200 people in but anyone who turned up after could take a chance. I had brought along his diary's book as well and he seemed delighted i had it. I said i hadn't finished it yet and he joked and said well it will proberbly take me a decade! I then asked when the next one was due out and he said 2009 so i said well at least i have pleanty of time to finish this one then! We could take pictures but without flash but no posing with him. I took lots of pictures on my mobile and now he is my screen saver! Thanks Mr Palin for making my year! X
