We had a great night at Lewisham Library on Thursday. A substantial crowd, a relaxed atmosphere and some great writers. The first of many events for LGBT History Month, it was a diverse and entertaining evening.
V.A Fearon read from her novel The Girl With the Treasure Chest, about gang negotiator Dani, and her first meeting with lover Marie;
Kate Foley read us some varied poems from several collections covering everything from bedroom tax to first smoochy dance at the Gateways*
Cherry Potts stuck up for Helen of Troy in her story Behind the Mask, from Mosaic of Air
and V.G. Lee‘s heroine struggled to be a proper card-carrying lesbian in the teeth of straight friend Deirdre’s best attempts to scupper her.
