Chapeltown: where is it and what does it do? (7 June 2014)

Fiona Gell is the driving force behind the marvellous Big BookEnd festival of authors and books in Leeds and when she asked me to contribute a talk I jumped at the offer. I’m giving this talk on Saturday 7th June 2014 at the Leeds Central Library (2.30pm). Fiona’s an assiduous organiser and brilliant user of social media (I’m learning some of her tricks), so I had to write a blog and Tweet and all that stuff. Now I’ve been asked to make an event page on the dreaded Facebook, so here it is . There’s even an EventBrite thingy so you can book a ticket if you want to. And if you get really excited I think you can invite your friends too. It’s 12 years since the book was published and this is only the second time I’ve been asked to talk about it, so I’m very pleased to get the invitation. Check out the whole festival here – it’s full of wonderful events.

And then I prepared and delivered the talk. The room (in the city library) was full, the questions were stimulating and the feedback was good. You can see the slides here. Plus some photos, courtesy of Isobel_innitphotography.
