I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!
