  1. Fascinating opportunity for those who can attend.

    Orhan Pamuk even created an entire museum in Instabul dedicated to his latest book, The Museum of Innocence, filled with 83 displays for each of the 83 chapters of the novel.

    Now,if I can do this right, the link should take you to a slideshow with several of the objects on display which is pretty interesting.
