The most amazing thing happened on Sunday - Hinckley Road was lined with people waiting to welcome Richard III, or his remains, back to Leicester. It was a great community event and I saw people I haven't seen in years. Even though the cortege passed by in a split second, the sight of so many friends, neighbours and members of the local community lining Hinckley Road an a sunny March afternoon will remain in my memory for a long time.
If you haven't bought one already, this week is the time to head to Leicester market and buy a copy of Rosalind Adam's and Alice Povey's,
The Children's Book of Richard III.
Rosalind and her publisher will be in a small marquee, close to the Corn Exchange, in the centre of the market. She'll be signing copies and talking about her book.
Good luck, Ros! I hope you sell marquee loads of books.
