We’ve been a bit arbitrary deciding on a date for the anniversary (it took a good six months of planning to get to the point of registering the company, but it was registered at the end of July 2012, and we do have an event planned, so let’s make it a party.
Join us at Clapham Books, 120 Clapham High Street, London SW4 7UH on THURSDAY 18th JULY 7pm, for cake and readings from all our books including the two due out in September.
A few events to look forward to and to liven up a dull wet Friday.
Tomorrow, Saturday 30th June 11-6 we will have a stall at Crystal Palace Overground Festival, Westow Park SE19. We will be selling books, and signing them if anyone wants us to, and – depending on the ambient noise – maybe an impromptu reading…
On the same day, 13th July, earlier in the afternoon, Arachne author Liam Hogan will be reading at the OxJam Dalston Takeover launch party. The Party goes from 2pm -7pm but Liam is on at 4-4.15pm (so make sure you are there in plenty of time!) – that’s all happening at the Tipsy Bar 20 Stoke Newington Road N16 7XN
Part 4 of our LSE Space for Thought Branching Out festival work.
We collaborated with Summer All Year Long, our singing friends, and actor friends from Liars’ League to match songs and stories to the themes being explored by the festival.
Finding stories for Art Curation was easy Martin Pengelly‘s Girl with Palmettes (from London Lies, read by Lisa Rose) and Rob Walton‘s Lenny Bolton Changes Trains (Stations, read by Ray Newe) were obvious choices – finding a song was not so simple. Many (lovely) songs were considered and discarded by SAYL, until Patrick came up with Crash Test Dummies’ When I go out with Artists. A couple of hours of footling until it was in a key everyone could manage, and we were away.
Apologies for the sound quality here, the battery on the video camera went flat, and the backup was struggling even more than the respectable camera with an odd background hiss from the PA system.
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!
