I’m so glad that there are so many of you coming, and that you are so happy and congratulating now when the book is finally coming. I’m excited too I can’t deny it.
The book release will start at 18.30 Friday the 31st at Norrlands nation, and will be open the whole evening, so you don’t have to come exactly at that time if you can’t. But it might be good to know that I’m planing my short presentation at 19.00, and at 19.30 I will announce the the winner in the facebook competition (Check out www.facebook.com/thecavalady). After that we will show pictures that did not make it in the final lay out and others from our trips around “Cava country”.
During the evening you will be able to buy the book and get it signed if you want to, but you will also have the opportunity to get lots of information about Cava, Penedès, where to stay while visiting, what bodegas to visit etc. etc.And don’t forget that you will have the chance to try cava that is only available at he special ordering section at Systembolaget. So in other words a perfect time to try before you buy!
If you want to come to the release but did not get a formal invitation, just mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you on the list. The more the merrier!
I just don’t get it, where does all my time go?
Of course I work full time and then I have the book coming out and a lot of things to fix around that, and on top of everything I have a house and a small garden to take care of and wonderful friends and a family I want to spend time with! 24 hours on a day is just not enough and I wish I could fill in some application to apply for some more hours. But I am really not complaining because I have a wonderful life.
To get you all up to speed with how things are moving along with the book, I’m happy to announce that it is scheduled to arrive on my doorstep the last week of August, and I am so excited I could die. That same week on the 31st of August I welcome all of you who are in or close to Uppsala (Sweden) to come to the official Swedish book-release. There will be books and the opportunity to taste some Cava’s that are only available on our special ordering section at the monopoly. It will be a great #Happy_Friday_Cava event with full focus on these fantastic bubbles and some of the fantastic producers!
In September I will be hosting a Cava tasting during the “Spanish wine days” at Grand Hotel in Stockholm and it will be open for the public. I am doing this together with Institute del Cava and the Spanish board of commerce here in Sweden (ICEX). I will bring my book of course, so if you cant come to Uppsala you have a second chance to get a sighed ex.
In october 7-9th I’ll be in Sant Sadurni d’Anoia during Cavatast to distribute the book, and hopefully we will have the official Spanish book release. But I am still awaiting Institute del Cava’s decision regarding this, and they are right now enjoying some well deserved vacation.
And then I have some new plans until x-mas. So you see, I’m keeping my self busy!
In the spring, me and my lovely husband Andréas will start on the next Cava book. So stay tuned!
