Coming Up: the Lit & Phil
A quick post to remind anyone withing striking distance of Newcastle that I’m reading from The North End of the Possible at the Lit & Phil on Monday evening. The event is free — which leaves you free to spend your pennies on a sparkling, hot-of-the-press copy of the book — and starts at 7:00pm. There’s a Facebook event for the reading here. You can book tickets from the library itself.
Can’t wait for this gig. I read at the Lit & Phil as part of a fundraiser for the library with Rob A Mackenzie and several Red Squirrel Press poets in 2010. It’s a wonderful venue in a great city buzzing with literary activity and talent, and a great opportunity for me to read extensively from the collection.
The event has been organised by Sheree Mack, the Lit & Phil’s writer in residence, who has worked with Alastair Cook (here is Al’s stunning collodion portrait of her; and here is the filmpoem they have made for the Absent Voices project). I’m thoroughly looking forward to meeting her, to seeing some Newcastle/Northumberland friends and to meeting new folk!
