Lemony Snicket

As one of 70 winners of a competition to attend the latest Unfortunate Event, I ventured to the Clink Prison Museum in Southwark on Monday. The event was most entertaining, beginning with the singing of "Unhappy Birthday" to a girl whose birthday it was. Afterwards I met the man himself; he signed my copy of The Grim Grotto "to Rachel, with admiration and dread" and I got a goody bag containing a CD, a book of postcards with pictures from the film, a pencil case, a copy of The Bad Beginning with a gold-embossed cover, and information about both Book The Thirteenth (out soon) and the forthcoming Beatrice Letters.
