Rare performance from yours truly…in London

I’m giving a very rare reading next week from my book Curious Incidents in the Garden at Night time. In fact so rare it has never happened before. Me being basically shy and all. So why now? Well, its part of an evening of arts and environment related stuff called Look Both Ways and having been invited by organisor Helen Babbs it only seemed polite to say yes. So there we are, put my best foot forward and join in. The event is in London – details below – a week next sunday so come along if you’re in the area and say hello. Its an amazing line up and from clips I’ve seen of previous events they’ve held I think it will be a really lovely evening.
