Frances and Lynne Adventure: First Public Event for The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Event: First Public Event for The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Place: The Forum, Bath
Date: 14th June 2013

 “Adults follow paths. Children explore. Adults are content to walk the same way, hundreds of times, or thousands; perhaps it never occurs to adults to step off the paths, to creep beneath rhododendrons, to find the spaces between fences. I was a child, which meant that I knew a dozen different ways of getting out of our property and into the lane, ways that would not involve walking down our drive.” The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

 Final Verdict: If you are a fan of Neil Gaiman, seeing him live is an absolute must!
