The last of the videos from #Arachne5 anniversary party, the camera battery died after this – so it will be just audio from here on.
Nichol Wilmor reads An Account of Six Poisonings from Weird Lies in which families and lovers resort to extreme measures.
and Sarah Lawson reads Next Door to the Capulets, (originally read at our Shakespeare inspired Midsummers Night In The Garden event) in which, whilst the Capulets and Montagues disturb a lot of air, the neighbours just grumble.
Weird lies is part of special offer for our 5th Anniversary – get it for just £5
and YOU? Join in with Flash from the Floor, 100 words of fiction or poetry on theme – write in advance (on the train on the night seems to be a popular method) or in the interval – pens and paper provided.
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
