    Lady C – we just returned from the UK and were fortunate enough to take some wonderful images of the castle from afar. I worked closely with Nora S (she is fantastic!) and purchased some autographed books for our US PBS affiliate to auction and raise funds for programming. Do you have any plans to visit the US for a booksigning tour?
