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)
Just briefly, the launch of Stations at the Brunel Museum was huge fun, here’s a snippet of the song we started with to keep you going until I’ve edited the video/ audio, for that, and the readings at Deptford Lounge and Canvas & Cream from last week.
Join us at the Brunel Museum, Railway Avenue, Rotherhithe SE16 (right by Rotherhithe Overground Station) today from 12:30 to 14:30 for the official Launch of Stations. Readings, book signings, special offers on books, badges and tours of the Brunels’ Tunnel, and general silliness, in the spirit of which, a little animation:
I don’t suppose this list is in any way complete, and for a start, I remember a story set on the Piccadilly line I read on-line last year which involved spectacles left at Cockfosters and lost luggage offices which was very entertaining which isn’t on here (Can’t remember who it was by, can anyone help?). And I met Sarah Butler at a NAWE workshop a couple of weeks ago, and she produced The Central Line Stories with London Underground a couple of years ago – so, with next year the 150th Anniversary of the Underground, maybe its time to read some London Transport fiction? You could start with Stations, which will be gracing the bookshops and not a few railway carriages, I shouldn’t wonder in only a months time!
