Los organizadores solicitaron al famoso autor británico Mr. Michael Morpurgo que participara, vía Skype, en la Feria del Libro. Sus ocupaciones no se lo han permitido, pero sí nos ha remitido la siguiente carta:
"Thank you for writing to me. I love to hear from my readers.
I am at home today and this is my favourite time of year, when Clare and I can go for walks in the countryside around our home and see the fields and hedges coming to life after the winter, looking in the puddles for the first frog spawn. In the evenings I make bread and last week Clare and I made 20 jars of delicious dark marmalade! This is when I get my writing done. I have just finished my new novel. I have enjoyed writing it and I hope you will enjoy reading it. Haven’t worked out a title yet – watch this space! It comes out in the Autumn.
I am looking forward hugely to the year ahead. In May we are going to Dublin when the paperback of ‘Listen to the Moon’ (Harper Collins) comes out. In September one my favourite short stories ‘My Father is a Polar Bear’ is being published by Walker Books with truly wonderful illustrations by Felicita Sala
This year I am thrilled to have theatrical productions adapted from my books, playing all around the country. In July ‘Running Wild’ is being performed at the Chichester Festival, in August an adaptation of ‘The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips’ is being performed in Cornwall by Knee High, the play is called ‘946’. Look out for magical performances of ‘I Believe in Unicorns’ by Alibi Theatre all over the country! And last but not least Joey trots on in War Horse in London, Holland and soon in Belgium – and before the end of the year in Beijing, China!
During the year I will be travelling up and down the country, speaking at festivals and also performing with my friends John Tams, Coope, Boyes and Simpson, Voices at the Door and The Storyteller’s Ensemble, concerts inspired by ‘War Horse’, ‘Private Peaceful’ and ‘The Mozart Question’. And for the first time Clare and I will appear on stage together in our new concert based on ‘Where my Wellies Take Me’!
So it is going to be a busy year. It would be great to meet you if you were able to come to one of my talks or one of the concerts. For more details visit my website: www.michaelmorpurgo.org.
All good wishes".
