A well attended event, about a dozen enthusiastic folk, only one of whom we already knew! thank you to Alan and Paolo for their excellent marketing.
Appropriately for a Forest Hill gig, we started the evening with Peter Morgan’s Mr Forest Hill Station, about an eccentric and seemingly eternally youthful man only ever seen in the station’s environs.
Moving one stop north we encountered Rosalind Stopps’ story of aging romantic angst in How to Grow Old in Brockley.
Over (or should it be under) the river we stopped off at Shoreditch for Katy Darby’s drug-and-ego fuelled tale of Bafta wannabe’s The Horror, the Horror.
And our furthest point north, Hoxton brought us Caroline Hardman’s story of a vampire completely out of his depth.
Two events to choose from tonight: LGBT History Month event at Deptford Lounge (Cherry & Paula plus Actors) or The Book Stops Here (Rosalind & Darren) It’s a tough call – but at least it should have stopped snowing by then.
It’s official publication day for Lovers’ Lies! A chance to buy your beloved something more original than a box of chocolates for Valentine’s day
We had a full house on Sunday at Keats House for the launch, (great venue by the way) we ran out of books and I had to do the publishing equivalent of ‘family hold back’ and ask the authors to wait for their free copies (they’re coming, promise). Lots of authors readand a fun time was had by all -
LSE Space for Thought Festival 2013: Branching Out runs from Tuesday 26th until Saturday 2nd March, and everything is FREE (Including a workshop from Katy Darby on Saturday morning)!
On Saturday 2nd March Arachne Press will be providing entertainment in the foyer between the main events in the auditorium. We are going for a Liars’ League style with readings by actors, and have chosen stories from all three books to fit the themes of the other events. Each section will be introduced by a very brief burst of (equally appropriate) song from our friends Summer All Year Long to draw attention!
