"Your Crocodile Has Arrived" - by Laurie McAndish King

“Your Crocodile Has Arrived” – by Laurie McAndish King

Laurie King says:

“The launch party for my second collection of travel stories, Your Crocodile has Arrived: More true stories from a curious traveler, will be on Saturday evening, August 19, at Book Passage in Corte Madera. All BATW members are invited to attend. (And bring guests!) Festivities begin at 7 p.m.

Because one of the stories in this book is called “Chocotherapy,” the party will be chocolate-themed. (I thought that would be tastier than a crocodile-themed event.) I’ll read a short excerpt from the story about the chocolate massage I received in Seville, but we won’t be having actual massages at the book launch. Nevertheless, I promise the chocolate will be memorable.”
