LOROS Fundraiser Reading

I am doing a special reading on Saturday 30th January, and I would like to invite readers of this blog to attend.

LOROS is a Leicestershire hospice offering care for those who are dying. I was really honoured to be asked by local writer Keith Large to read at a fundraiser event for the charity. My mum passed away in a hospice after a long battle with cancer, and the care that was given to her there made every step of that journey more bearable. I will be reading my short story Cthul-You, and anyone attending will also be treated to poetry, theatre and a reading from non-other than Graham Joyce (*cough* World Fantasy and 5 time British Fantasy Award winner *cough*) It’s also in the city Guildhall, a rather ancient venue which is fitting as the night has a spooky theme.. So. Both a good cause and a good night.

‘A Spooky Night at the Guildhall’ LOROS Fundraiser Event, Leicester Guildhall, 6:30pm on Saturday 30th September. Tickets £10 including wine and nibbles.
