I read today that Khaled Hosseini (author of The Kite Runner) has canceled the remainder of his promotional tour, including this Tuesday’s appearance, here in Birmingham.
Oh well. It would have been a great meet and greet. I heard his presentation about displaced peoples around the world was fantastic. Not too mention the signed editions of A Thousand Splendid Suns ticket holders were supposed to get. Oh well. But, I do hope the family emergency that called him home isn’t anything too terribly serious though.
