What did I find in my inbox this morning but an email from my lovely, hard-working publicity gal at Orbit containing details for the first half of my tour. So, as promised, I’ve listed the events below:

Waterstones has an events page where you can buy tickets here, though at the time of writing this it was only showing four events. I’m guessing that this means the other events are free – but don’t quote me on that! Definitely ring the store and check. Thanks to commenters, I can now tell you that you can’t buy tickets from the website, and that all stores will probably sell tickets. I’d still advise contacting the store to check.
I’ll put the details for the German part of my tour in another post. So far the only public event I’m attending in France is Imaginales – which looks like it’s going to be wonderful!
Let me know if you spot any errors. If there are any changes or additional information I’ll add them here for now, then perhaps do a new post containing all my tour details just before I leave.
