Place Waste Dissent book launches

We had a packed-out, emotional launch last night at the wonderful Brick Lane Bookshop for Place Waste Dissent – many thanks to Danial Kramb and the bookshop, Gary Budden, Kit Caless, Influx Press, Sarer Scotthorne, George F., Lucy Furlong and all who came, including old friends from the No M11 Link Road and Claremont Road days; Richard Leighton, John Ling, Michelle Butcher and Steve Ryan (whose photographs feature in Place Waste Dissent).

It’s out on Nov 12, available from all good bookshops, direct from Influx Press or, if you leave me a message @PlayWDissent , you can order a signed copy direct from me …

Hope to see you at one of the launch events;

Nov 21 – 7.30pm at The Arts House in Bristol’s Stokes Croft  where you can hear me reading from the book, as well as poets Sam Berkson and Sarer Scotthorne doing their thing, plus a screening of Blight, and think of some questions to ask me afterwards, as Gary’s ‘chairing’ a Q & A at the end.

Then 7pm at The Brick Lane Bookshop, London on Dec 5 where Sarer Scotthorne, Lucy Furlong and George F. are reading. Both events are free. Yup, that’s right . . .  FREE. And afterwards there’s Influx Press Xmas drinking/back-slapping/schmoozing to be done at The Water Poet pub in Folgate Street.

Bring a spare tenner if you want to buy a copy of the new book too. That’s why you’re coming isn’t it? No … er, well, you never know. Always be prepared …

Come along to The Arts House in Bristol between Nov 12 and Dec 10th to see an exhibition of prints of collage/text from the book. It would be great to have a natter over a coffee, if anything takes your fancy, then you can buy a print or two as well. Copies of the book will be on sale  (when I’m around), or leave me a message on Twitter @PlayWDissent to arrange a meet-up.

If you’re in Bristol I’m reading at #sanctumbristol, including a red-eye 2 hour slot. But I can’t reveal when … suffice to say it’s a Situations UK project masterminded by Theaster Gates and involves non-stop performances at a beautiful temporary structure in the grounds of the Temple Church, Bristol. Non-stop for 24 hours a day, for 552 hours from Oct 29 to Nov 21. No headliners or opening acts. Just turn up and see who’s on. It’s really very, very good. Trust me.

See you around . . .
