Lugano's Book Nook welcomes Diccon Bewes

“You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.”
Paul Sweeney

Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 25th and spread the word – The Book Nook is organizing an evening to benefit Ticino’s English library & used bookseller. Entertainment will include Special Literary Guest, Diccon Bewes, author of "Swiss Watching: Inside Europe’s Landlocked Island".

The London travel writer, Diccon Bewes, has lived in Bern for five years. What could be more obvious, therefore, than writing a book about Switzerland, this island within Europe. "How come that the Alpine republic has managed to make its products famous the the world over, but hasn't produced many well-known citizens?" Bewes wondered. So, he bought himself a rail pass and set off to find out "how this enigmatic country ticks".

Just check out his crash course to all things Swiss, from A to Z, which is one of the most popular posts from his blog at:
