If I could travel at the speed of light, I would be reading my flash story Rising Dawn, at Story Fridays ‘Speed of Light’ event in Bath this Friday, 22nd September, but I’m booked on a film course Saturday morning and it’s one thing too many.
Fortunately actor Kirsty Cox is there to read it for me! So if you are in Bath, go along to Burdall’s Yard and listen in for me! Lots of other great stories.
We had a great evening at Gay’s the Word – thank you to Uli & Jim – and despite Kate’s determination to walk out of shot, we have some video – where it got silly, with just a sleeve on show, there’s audio instead.
Here’s Cherry reading a bit about family from The Dowry Blade, chosen specially to link with Kate’s themes, and not read elsewhere.
You may have realised from the last couple of posts, that I’m a bit of a history gal. So of course I am taking part in a few events over February.
First out of the traps:
Lewisham Library 199-201 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6LG (see the videos)
6th February 7.45 for 8, until 9.30
free, but ticketed. 40 tickets available so probably wise to book.
I will be reading from Mosaic of Air (It’s twenty years since it was first published, it qualifies as history – actually that’s a bit alarming – there are quite a few historical stories in it, and what are now period pieces but were contemporary at the time! ).
(Incidentally, should you be keen enough to want to come to all the events I’m involved in over February, I shall be making an effort to read something different each time, and the focus will vary too.)
