Stormlight Book Launch with Jan Woolf
Friday February 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Riversmeet Press invites you to the Housmans launch of Stormlight by Jan Woolf
Stories – short and long- setting ordinary people against big themes; love, war, loss, contemporary politics and the search for fulfilment. Like the author’s first collection Fugues on a Funny Bone they are funny, witty and acerbic as well as serious.
Stormlight includes her Royal Court short play You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know examining the Blair legacy. Stories range from a Rambler’s Christmas day walk, a childless senior sneaking into a mothers’ and babies’ only film, a bitter family argument over the EU referendum, management consultant wonkery, and the down but not quite out of homeless street life. All are rooted in experience and activism.
The evenings readings will include Jan’s short play ‘You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know’ first performed at the Royal Court. Guest actors will include Alan Franks.
Wine included. Cash sales only of Stormlight on the night.
