This week I did two readings from Mosaic of Air for LGBT History Month, the first at North Kensington Library.
(note about the videos: my website randomly allocates different formats to video, not all of which work with internet explorer: they all work with Mozilla Firefox so try that of you can’t see them!)
Here I read from Ladies Pleasure, which is set in an old people’s home.
And a new piece Clock: most of the action takes place at the top of a thirteenth century clock tower in a north european town, although the action is set in the late nineteenth century.
And the story which gave Arachne Press its name: Arachne’s Daughters, in which a spider gives a lecture (introduced and interjected into by Alix, playing ‘the archivist’)
and finally, Penelope is No Longer Waiting, my first ever published story, in which the Odyssey gets a different ending.
The plan is to read different stories at each event, so watch this space for more video or audio recordings, or come along to the last three events: The Story Sessions Queer Tales on 19th February, Crofton Park Library on 21st, and Cafe of Good Hope Rainbow Readings on the 26th.
