On Wednesday 25th June from 7:30pm, Influx Press and legendary live fiction team Liars' League will team up to celebrate the release of Above Sugar Hill by Linda Mannheim; a book of 'smouldering vignettes achingly sad and beautifully wrought' (Stuart Evers) with a night of New York stories set on river Thames floating pub. Entertaining, witty and moving short stories set in New York will be read out on the night by professional actors, bringing the great American city to life in London.
Above Sugar Hill, which is being launched on the night and read out by actors tells "restive tales of a desiccated stretch of New York that provoke and abide like a slap." (Eimear McBride, author of A Girl is a Half Formed Thing)
As well as stories from Above Sugar Hill, there are carefully selected stories from the Liars' League archive and a story by novelist Richard Smyth.
Liars' League is a monthly live fiction event where new short stories by emerging writers are read by professional actors: the motto is "Writers write, actors read, audience listens, everybody wins." Their archive includes over 400 stories and MP3 recordings and over 200 HD videos.
All set on the Tamesis floating pub, a 1930s Dutch barge moored on the Thames. This is a live literature night that will be hard to forget!
And it's FREE!
You will not get a better free live fiction night on a floating boozer for the rest of your life.
