4/24/06: Blue Shoes and Happiness

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Author Alexander McCall Smith has described his predilection for serial novels as his "condition." Having newly published Blue Shoes and Happiness, the seventh in his No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and last year's 44 Scotland Street which appeared as a daily serialized novel for The Scotsman in his native Scotland, no antidote seems on the horizon. McCall Smith is in Salt Lake City, and joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about the adventures of Mma Precious Ramotswe and about the charm of storytelling.

The King's English Bookshop will host Alexander McCall Smith at the Salt Lake Community College Grand Theatre (1575 South State Street) on Monday, April 24, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. For more information, visit The King's English on-line or call 801-484-9100.
