We have a busy schedule of guest readings and performances at Roundabout Nights at the Alexandra, Chatham for the rest of the year.
On 17 November, poet Fiona Sinclair joins us for the Medway launch of her first full-length poetry collection, ‘Ladies who lunch’. Fiona’s work deals with the past, family and the peculiarities of life. Her poetry forms little vignettes or stories.
On 24 November, She Writes at Roundabout Nights are pleased to present a rehearsed reading of Alison Mead’s new full-length play ‘Politic Man’. The play tells the story of an extraordinary couple, Alfred and Ada Salter, who were instrumental in improving living conditions in the East End in the first part of the 1900s.
On 1 December, writer and publisher Maria C McCarthy will join us as our guest author. Maria will be reading stories from her highly lauded collection ‘As long as it takes’; ‘Dark, impeccably minimalistic stories about immigrant Irish mothers and their English-born daughters.’ Martina Evans
On 8 December, we will have our last Type’n’gripe of the year, so if you’ve been doing NANOWRIMO, why don’t you bring that along and share an extract! Our final event of the year will be our Christmas Lucky Dip Party on 15 December, where there will be festive mirth and treats aplenty! We hope to see you at some of our literary events!
