LGBT History Month events

LGBT History month poster smallLGBT History month is keeping us busy this year. Cherry Potts is reading from Mosaic of Air at a number of events (Incidentally, should you be keen enough to want to come to all the events Cherry is involved in over February, she will be making an effort to read something different each time, and the focus will vary too, as will the company!

Lewisham Library 199-201 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6LG
6th February 7.45  for 8, until 9.30

February’s Story Sessions celebrates LGBT history month.

Clare Summerskill

Stella Duffy is unable to join us after all, but Clare Summerskill has stepped up to fill the gap (Thank you Clare, for helping out at such short notice.) Clare will be joined by Rebecca Idris author of The Sitar, ably supported by  local author Cherry Potts, Cath Blackfeather and poet Anny Knight.

Don’t forget you can join in with our Flash from the Floor floor spots after the interval: 100 words of your own poetry or flash fiction on theme.

The theme for LGBT month this year is music,so if that additional element inspires you, nothing to stop you preparing your 100 words in advance!

**The Story Sessions are normally free, however, as we are paying our headliner, we wil be asking for a voluntary contribution of whatever you think the evening is worth!**
