Lisa Dempster’s travel memoir, Neon Pilgrim, will be launching at Readings in Carlton today. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Lisa’s work, Lisa keeps a blog, Unwakeable, which talks about topics like veganism, indie publishing, and twittering/tweeting. Her posts often stimulate discussion amongst her followers and their comments are worth a read too.
Neon Pilgrim is Lisa’s third book, and it narrates her attempt to hike the henro michi, a 1200 kilometre Buddhist pilgrimage that visits eighty-eight Japanese temples. Lisa has put up an excerpt from the book on her blog, detailing the start of her journey; the blog has links to a couple of Neon Pilgrim reviews as well.
Anyway, the launch is tonight. Things start happening at 7pm, so drop by at Readings Carlton to check it out.
