  1. Just got back from the Avid Reader launch in West End: some fantastic addresses from both Shelley and Victor were followed by voracious reading of the foreword, introduction and first few articles on the train ride home. I'd love to read a transcript of Shelley's speech if at all possible.

    From what I have read and heard tonight, Speak Now appears to carry the weight of a piece of cultural history and an important legacy for my generation in our effort to carry on the equal rights discussion.
    Congratulations to Victor and all who contributed to this project, I look forward to enjoying the book in its entirety.
