John Hegley + Time Travel Opportunists (At The Pub)

This month, as well as releasing another book, we're partaking in this:



I think we fit into the 'fine local poets' bit. Although we're more storytellers, readers of fiction, than we are 'poets'.

We like John Hegley though, and it will be nice to do our stuff before he does his stuff. You can listen to or read the latter here.

The Brunswick is right near the train station and sells mighty fine home brewed beverages. You can look at pictures of trains while you are waiting, and if you squint it feels like you're in 1913.

Hmmm and the Jazz band I've heard before and good stuff .. will be an enjoyable night at the Brunswick - where the beer is better than decent .. Come On Out good folks.. !
