It was Hats ON for Bartle at Wednesday Night’s Story Sessions, a seasonal collection of stories about cult singing groups and carol services, Spanish and Greek alcohol, a lack of christmas spirit, unwelcome and uninvited guests, and interlopers of other kinds, from Cherry Potts, Peter Higgins, Joan Taylor-Rowan and Paula Read, as well as Bartle and his hats – the audience joined in with a few Flash from the Floor, and hat wearing! The Ivy House got in the spirit of things with ivy garlands, fairly lights, roaring log fires, additional speakers (thanks Nyge) and festive gold lamé curtains for the stage too.
We have a stall at the Christmas Market in the charming Alexandra Nurseries (Parish Lane, Penge SE20 7LJ) this coming Sunday 8th December 10-5, selling our gorgeous books, some festive cards and giving away free canvas bags to anyone who buys a book, and a few balloons, recipes and other silliness.
So you can come along and buy a christmas tree, and then buy lots of books as presents to put under it! (“Other stalls are available.”)
Special offer bundle of all three Liars’ books for the price of two. If I can find some ribbon they may come ready bundled. SOme of our more local authors may drop in for a half hour or so so if you coincide, you might get a book signed.
