A Lively Dame

This makes me happy:

Penelope Lively made a Dame (that's the female equivalent of being knighted).

She is an amazing writer, a favourite of mine, one of the only authors who has her own tag on my blog ;)

She has a new book out, How It All Began. I can not wait to read it. I've been reading her steadily for a few years and only have one or two titles left unread so very delighted to know there is another.


  1. I have never read her before. I guess I should!

  2. Kailana - while I never like to say "should" in terms of reading choices, I would agree that Penelope Lively is well worth the time invested in reading her!

  3. Oh! I missed this news! Thanks so much for posting about it. (And what a luverly shot of her, too!)


Thanks for stopping by ~ I always enjoy hearing your comments so please feel free to leave some!
