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…
Arachne founder and Author Cherry Potts is reading at Brixton Book Jam on Monday 8th July at the Hootananny, 95 Effra Road, Brixton, SW2 IDF sometime after 7:30 and can also be caught singing in the chorus of Blackheath Halls Community Opera, Verdi’s Macbeth for most of the rest of that week.
Further readings to be had at
Southwark Arts Fair at Hays Galleria 1 Battle Bridge Lane, London SE1 2HP (right on the river)
Saturday 13th July 6-7pm
with readings from
London Lies: The Suitcase Rosalind Stopps
Stations: A Place of Departures Cherry Potts
Lovers’ Lies: For Your Ears Only Bartle Sawbridge
A threat at London Bridge Station … a tour guide who may be more than he seems …
and temporary deafness cured by art.
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

On Saturday 27th July we will be at Leeds Book Fair
St Johns Shopping Centre, Merrion Street, Leeds, LS2 8LQ
with a stall, and readings (times to be confirmed) from
Lovers’ Lies – This isn’t Heat by Richard Smyth and Mirror by Cherry Potts,
and from Stations – Morning Sunshine by Louise Swingler.
A bit of a stop press.
There will be lots of stalls with local artists and crafts people selling their wares, workshops (including for children) and a stage with an hourly turn round of acts, (Music, dancers, singers…) and on the Saturday, at 6pm Arachne Press authors/actors will perform 3 stories. Don’t know who or which stories yet as we’ve only just met with SAF, but watch this space!
And in other news, just under 48 hours left to contribute to our Weird Lies funding drive over on Kickstarter. If we don’t get all the money we don’t get any of it! There are still some awesome rewards available, including, for the writers out there, detailed assessment of your work by Katy Darby (Novels) or Cherry Potts (Short Stories); there’s original art from Richard Smyth, and strictly for Londoners, there is cake (!) from the kitchen of Katy Darby. Anyone who has been to one of our caked up readings will know this is a prize beyond rubies.
