I will be on Out in South London on Resonance 104.4 FM this evening sometime between 6.30 and 7.30, if you feel like tuning in. I’ll be talking to Rosie Wilby about LGBT History month and … stuff.
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.
