|the things I will be carrying|
I'm not sure how it got to be March. But today is March 1st, and that means it's also the day of the East Midlands launch of Overheard:Stories to Read Aloud. It's taking place at De Montfort University, Leicester, and is part of the Cultural Exchanges Festival.
There's a host of writers reading their stories from the book, including Jonathan Taylor, Deborah Tyler-Bennett, Joel Lane, Aimee Wilkinson, Catherine Rogers, Simon Perril, Will Buckingham, Alexandros Plasatis(it's worth your bus fare just to hear this story alone!), Kathleen Bell, Judith Allnatt, Felicity Skelton, and me!
The launch is free to attend, all are welcome, and will be in the Clephan Building from 6pm - 8pm. So, if you fancy a bit of storytelling to kick the weekend off nicely, put on your listening cardigan or your fancy pants and come along.
There are more details about the event here.
See you there!
