November 28 - MP talk in London by andrea_nyc on 3 October 2006 8:55am
 
MP is doing a talk in London for the book on November 28th. There's a link and the info is a long scroll down:
http://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk/jsp/bobuk_editorial/whats_on.jsp

I think he's also signing copies afterwards. I haven't heard about this - I just saw a poster in the bookstore window. Shouldn't the site have this information? :)

Thanks ever so much, Andrea!

That's a really good question Andrea. I've often wondered why events such as this are not mentioned on the site. Quite bizarre.

Ticket booked! Thanks for that!

Will buy a few extra copies of the book and get them signed, they'll make a nice stocking filler for a few family members at Christmas :-)

Does anyone know if Michael is doing any other booksignings for this book?

It does say 'exclusive London event' but we can but live in hope!

Michael Palin - The Python Years 1969-1979
Hatchards, 187 Piccadilly, W1J 9LE Map






These days he's better known for swanning off on his next incredible jaunt around the world, but Michael Palin made his name as a television presenter, writer and an unforgettable comedian in Monty Python's Flying Circus. The multi-talented performer even took time out to scribble down everything that was going on in a diary.

The book tells the story of the incredible, sudden success of the Monty Python TV series and the movie spin-offs alongside the rest of Palin's life. He is contending with a new family and continuing his interest in other projects. There's not much grit or hardship, instead its a lovely tale of talent and good fortune - it makes a pleasant change.

Furthermore you can't begrudge him his luck. In fact, in the flesh Palin is just the affable, slightly faltering Englishman you would expect from his TV personality.

Well, arty, you just listen to him (he is very entertaining), there may be questions at the end. Then queue up afterwards to get your book signed if you want (if you have the book, that is!).
