WHSmith and Waterstones are set to host book signings for Fully Functioning Human (Almost).
Melanie Murphy has revealed details of a UK book tour to promote her autobiographical book, Fully Functioning Human (Almost): Living in an Online/ Offline World. Commencing 29 August, the ticketed events will involve a book signing and an opportunity to interact with Melanie herself.
“You’re essentially paying for the book, but you also get to hang to with me and I’m going to be signing it,” reveals Melanie in the vlog. Running from 29-31 August, the tour will take place in various Waterstones and WHSmith book stores around the UK.
Melanie explains, “The shop will be closed so it will be like an in-store private kind of gathering.”
