Chorlton Festival Programme Announced
I'm alerted to this year's Chorlton Festival, from 14-23rd May. It's a busy time of year - and I'll be at Futuresonic for the first part - but I'm pleased to say I should be able to make my friend Ruth Estevez reading from her novel "Meeting Coty" in the pleasant surroundings of the Lloyds pub on Sunday 17th May, she's got a supporting cast of local poets as well. Worth adding that though "Meeting Coty" is being advertised in a way that might appear romantic, and the setting is historical, we used to meet up when Ruth was writing the novel, and her style is elegant, condensed and powerfully descriptive.
