Crystal Palace Park looms large in the minds of Arachne writers – for Stations, not only Jacqueline Downs‘ Crystal Palace dreadfest She Didn’t Believe in Ghosts, but Joan Taylor-Rowan‘s touching tale of the birds and bees Birdland (set in Anerley), and Adrian Gantlope‘s horrific Penge Tigers feature the park. But what’s this! The park also gets a starring role in Alan McCormick‘s alcohol soaked tale of office christmas parties and running, The Runner.
We will also be joined by Andrew Blackman who will be reading his Sydenham based tale, Actress.
Adrian is in the process of moving up north so Cherry Potts will read his story for him.
Join us for a view from (and of) the hill with a combined Stations and London Lies reading at Bookseller Crow On the Hill, Westow Street, Crystal Palace SE19 3AF.
