A week or so ago I connected with a teacher in Istanbul via Twitter. I told her about my Turkish translation, GIZEMLI NEHIR (THE RIVER). She was interested in it and since she teaches English, she's considering using THE RIVER as a novel study. I am always thrilled when a teacher wants to study one of my books!
The teacher then went to the Istanbul Book Fair, and tonight on Twitter she shared two photos with me...
I thought maybe she'd propped up the one book for the photo, but she says it was like that when she first saw it. I find it amazing that out of thousands of books, she noticed mine.
Regardless, this was a huge thrill for me. :-)
Gizemli Nehir - The River. Available online in English and Turkish.
