To usher in the launch of Story Cities tonight, here is Rosamund Davies at Greenwich Book Festival reading her flash fiction piece, Today’s Arrivals and Departures, which is in the Termini section of the book, and the first story in it.
There are still a handful of tickets for the launch tonight, but you do NEED to register via eventbrite
still making it, but definitely going to be cake.
Very excited about the launch party tomorrow for Story Cities… Kam has been busy decorating the Stephen Lawrence Gallery
and I’m currently baking a cake that will NOT be big enough for 100+ people.
There are 20 tickets left for this free event, so if you were dithering, get a move on.
I forsee lots of selfies in front of that wall…
And we have lots of readings and refreshments, in fact we have so much to get through that you really need to be on time!

Editors Kam Rehal, Rosamund Davies and Cherry Potts will be discussing putting together Story Cities, from initial idea, through first meeting, call out, story decisions, design issues and even printing!
If you’ve ever wondered what goes into making a book, this is for you. If you just like the sound of this particular book, we will in the course of our discussion illustrate with readings.
Story Cities hits the shops on 13th June, but you will have to wait for the LAUNCH PARTY until… Thursday 20th June, 7pm

There will be cake. Of course. I’m think of a little forest of gingerbread buildings stuck into something chocolately…
