On Wednesday 14 October my friend and author / editor / publisher Lisa Dempster gave a reading at Readings on Lygon St at the launch of her first book as an author. Neon Pilgrim recounts her time in Japan completing the henro michi, a 1200 kilometre Buddhist pilgrimage and is available online from Aduki independent press and from groovy booksellers. I met some literary and creative people there that I have previously only corresponded with online, which was fantastic, including the authors of Hackpacker and Miss Curieux. Other friends old and new, including Veg Adventures, Wordyness and Literary Minded, were there too. I’m going to spend today in cafes on Brunswick St reading Neon Pilgrim.

    Great launch for a great book. Real travel for real people without all the tourbus phoney opinion. Just good writing and a likeable writer.
    Nice to meet the man behind the phenomenon at last. Have been a browsing dandy for a while and it was great to chat all too briefly.
