Northampton booQfest – what a venue!


My reading and talk at the booQfest on 16th September will be in the first floor gallery at The Charles Rennie Mackintosh House and Galleries which are at 78 Derngate.


I have to say it’s a pretty apt place for me since when I studied at the Architectural Association (all those years ago) Mackintosh was very much a part of my life. I’ve never been to the house in Derngate – only to Glasgow – so this is something that I’m doubly looking forward to. I hope you’ll come if you can – even if I bore you to death you’ll love the surroundings. You can find out more about the venue at their stunningly lovely website:

      Catherine, I’m not sure if that’s ‘Worth waiting for Steve’ or ‘Worth waiting for, Steve’ 😦

        Worth waiting for, Steve.

        Mind you, it kind of works both ways!

    Damn, I’m going home on the Sunday morning, so I won’t get to hear you do your thing! Hope it goes well – maybe see you there?
