"In the dangling conversation / and the superficial sighs / are the borders of our lives."-Simon and Garfunkel, "Dangling Conversation"
Even my persistent cold could not keep me away tonight (though it made one audience member think I was Scottish). The audience was receptive as ever, and I sold out of books.
It was a pleasure to read alongside the robust Hannah Lowe, tender Fiona Moore, hilarious Hilda Sheehan, polished Alison Brackenbury, thoughtful Matt Bryden, reflective Angela France, and inquisitive Kate White. Plus, we had a special appearance by Australian poet Michelle Cahill, and Henry Fajemirokun performed one of my favourite Simon and Garfunkel songs.
Heartfelt thanks to Anne-Marie Fyfe and her team for wonderful evening.
