We had a petite audience at the Brick Lane Bookshop, but we didn’t let that stop us having fun.
Here are snippets of the recordings – Tony Bell reading from Rob Walton’s Lenny Bolton Changes Trains lenny bolton changes trains
Caroline Hardman reading from Bloody Marys and a Bowl of Pho Caroline Hardman Bloody Marys & a Bowl of Pho
and Gloria Sanders reading from Katy Darby’s The Horror, the Horror the horror (gloria sanders)
Katy delighted audiences at both The Stations Launch at the Brunel Museum and at Deptford Lounge, this video snippet is from Deptford, as the video for the launch is technically speaking not very good! This is what you missed, if you weren’t there.
You will be able to compare Katy’s performance with another tonight, as Katy is double booked, and Gloria Sanders is going to read for her at Brick Lane Bookshop, 7pm. (nearest Overground Shoreditch High Street)
Today at 3pm @DitchShow @ShoreditchRadio interview with Cherry, Katy and Peter C then 7pm @BrickLaneBooks readings for Shoreditch, Whitechapel and more
Katy Darby, Peter Cooper and I were interviewed yesterday by Nia Charpentier of the Ditch Show Shoreditch Radio, on location in Shoreditch. I burbled about getting the Stations book into production and we each read extracts. Finding somewhere quiet enough was a bit of a challenge, and we ended up in the miniscule green space out the back of Translate café on Kingsland Road, in a light drizzle and with an extractor fan or a boiler or something muttering to itself in the background. Peter made the best of it as steam train sound effects for his Inspector Bucket takes the Train extract, and I was reminded once again how delightfully cruel Katy’s The Horror, the Horror really is. The segment will be broadcast on the Ditch show on Thursday 6th December 3-4pm, in nice time to plug our reading at Brick Lane Bookshop at 7pm the same day, and will be available as a podcast thereafter.
Join us to celebrate the East London section of our book, Stations, with readings for Hoxton, Shoreditch High Street, Whitechapel, Dalston and Shadwell.

Owing to geographical impossibility and prior bookings we will have two of the stories read by actors, so those who are unfamiliar with the Liars’ League way of doing things can explore the different texture to be had from an actor and an author reading their work in public.
