If you're in the Lower Mainland, you could do worse things than drop by Chapters on Robson Street at 7 pm tonight. I'll be doing an in-store interview -- in front of an audience and everything! -- with Mac Maharaj, editorial consultant of Mandela: The Authorized Portrait, before he signs books.
I love this book. It's a gorgeous monument to an incredible life -- much better and more satisfying than some old statue. I only wish that I'm remembered as fondly some day.
