See you there!
Just thought I’d mention, its three days almost exactly until time runs out on our funding bid. If you’d like to support us, please take a look at the pitch – you can have a laugh at me and Katy being distracted by every butterfly that flew past, and remaining oblivious of the trains roaring by at the bottom of the garden – one of the few decent patches of sun so far this ‘Summer’, a bit like today.
And in the meantime, watch a whole bunch of Arachne authors talk about their writing ambitions…

I’m getting to know bits of London I’ve never explored before, we are off to Harrow, to Gayton Library, 5 St John’s Road, Harrow, HA1 2EE for our final CityRead gig of this year on Tuesday 30th April 7pm.
Join Cherry Potts (Rotherhithe), Wendy Gill (Dalston), Bartle Sawbridge (Shadwell), Paula Read (Canonbury/ Honor Oak Park) for stories of history that climbs out of the mud to speak, maternal relationships, poetry and property, and either life changing experiences in the North or homelessness and home baking in the South depending on what mood Paula is in.
Forest Hill Library
Dartmouth Road SE23 3HZ
on Thursday 18th April 2013 7-8.30pm
Rosalind Stopps (Brockley), Caroline Hardman (Hoxton), Jacqueline Downs (Crystal Palace) and Peter Morgan (Forest Hill) for stories of love among the coffee cups, vampires in pubs, ghosts in the machine and eccentrics at a station.
A little delayed, but here is the video of our Stations event at Whitechapel Idea store

Cherry & Bartle
Yay! Friern Barnet Community Library got it’s licence and books will continue to be lent from this lovely purpose-built home for books. A victory for sanity and community action.
Arachne Press lent our support with a little reading from each of our books last Tuesday, when things were still a bit in doubt, so delighted with the result.
Here’s the video of our reading – apologies for the sound quality with hindsight the windowsill wasn’t the best place for the camera.
Cherry Potts reads from London Lies and Bobbie Darbyshire and Rosalind Stopps read from Lovers’ Lies.
