East London Line storytelling events

Cherry writes:

We’ve just published a book Stations, www.arachnepress.com/books/stations which has a story for each station on the East London Line. We are organising free readings at each station to celebrate the launch.

Each event will feature stories inspired by the location, read by local authors. The most local events already planned include:

Join us for stories of a strange don-like creature haunting a station, a local museum that houses more than exhibits, homelessness and home baking, a lesson on the birds and bees, and a missed chance at love.
