Reality Street live...
This spring, Reality Street hosts a series of live events at Hastings Old Town's legendary Electric Palace cinema, featuring Reality Street authors together with guest writers, artists and musicians.
The first event, on 19 February, featured Philip Terry reading from his Reality Street novel tapestry and from recent writing, and Ken Edwards reading and performing with Elaine Edwards (accordion & flute).
The second event, on 19 March, featured as guests of Reality Street the SF writer Christopher Priest, who talked about his work, poet and occult SF writer Paul A Green, who read from recent work, and saxophonist Trevor Watts, who played solo.
On 23 April, Denise Riley, whose Selected Poems was published by Reality Street in 2000, will make a rare appearance, and Richard Makin, whose book Dwelling was recently published by Reality Street, will read with still and moving images from artist Miranda Gavin.
