Italian Tour Dates
Ladra di Cioccolato is in stores in Italy! Grazie mille per tutte le ricensioni generose. (IF I said that right, I’m trying to say: Thank you so much for all the wonderfully generous reviews and the generous reception of the book.)
Fanucci, the Italian publisher, has very kindly invited me to do a book-launching tour of Italy to celebrate the release. So for Italian readers or those in Italy, the main public events are as follows:
28 September 2012. At the International Women’s Fiction Festival in Matera, Italy. Just Laura at the Shibuya Coffee Music Shop for a Chocolate Party at 9:45 p.m. [21:45 Shibuya Coffee Music Shop, Chocolate Party con Laura Florand, autrice di “Ladra di cioccolata”, Leggereditore. Presenta: Isabelle Spanu, Leggereditore.]
29 September 2012: Bari, Italy. 4:00 p.m. Giunti Bookstore, book signing.
1 October 2012: Florence, Italy. 6:00 p.m. Book signing and chocolate tasting at La Feltrinelli. [Lunedì 1 ottobre alle ore 18,30 alla Feltrinelli di Firenze in Via de’ Cerretani Laura Florand “chocolate tasting” e presentazione di Ladra di cioccolato.]
2 October 2012. 3:00 p.m. Facebook chat on the Ragazza moderna page with readers and bloggers. [L’autrice sarà protagonista di una chat con addetti ai lavori e fan su facebook direttamente dalla pagina di Ragazza moderna martedì 2 ottobre alle ore 17.]
2 October 2012: Rome. 7:30 p.m. Chocolate cocktails and a meet-the-author event at the SAID Chocolate Factory. (Event by invitation.) [Martedì 2 ottobre alle ore 18,30 da SAID Antica Fabbrica del cioccolato a San Lorenzo a Roma, Laura Florand presenta il suo romanzo e a seguire cocktail al cioccolato.]
I know there are also radio interviews scheduled for 27 September, 2 October, and 3 October, but I’m not sure yet which stations and when those will run.
It promises to be a very exciting week! I’ll try to share photos. Any tips of where to find good chocolate in Italy (besides at those signings!) are always welcome. Or gelato. Or any kind of food really. I’m hungry just thinking about traveling in Italy for a week.
