NOTE: This blog relates to 2014.
I’m coming to the UK next month, 1—10 October. I’ll be doing a bunch o’ stuff to support Hild. If you’re a reader of this blog I hope you’ll come along and introduce yourself.
If you’re in London I’m doing three events: at King’s College and Queen Mary University London, and at Forbidden Planet. If you’re in the north, I’ll be at the Ilkley Literature Festival and central libraries in Halifax and Stockton.
You have to buy tickets are on sale for two of the events, Ilkley and Stockton, but the others are free.
These events are all variations on a theme: I talk, often in conversation with a knowledgeable interlocutor—e.g. Professor Clare Lees at KCL and Professor Gweno Williams in Ilkley—I read, I answer your questions, I sign books. At one or two events the Q and A is chaired, but mainly it’ll be me happily telling long stories in answer to short questions. (See this video of one of my Q and As or a reading.)
