Poetry reading Hastings with Oona Grimes: Oct 27

Poetry reading Hastings: Oct 27

“Writer Iain Sinclair will be reading from Postcards from the 7th Floor, his poetic collaboration with artists Oona Grimes, at the Stade Hall, The Stade, in Hastings old town on Thursday 27 October. The project is centred on Marine Court, a huge and mysterious concrete building overlooking the ocean at St Leonard’s, just along the seafront from Hastings. Moving beyond the modernist fantasy of its imposing architecture, the dreams and lost souls swimming around Marine Court start to make themselves known. The Stade is on Rock a Nore Road, home of Hastings’s famous fishermen’s huts. Doors 7.30 pm for 8pm. Entry free.

News from Iain

I’m collecting ‘Postcards from the 7th Floor’ soon. And will be offering 26 special copies, lettered & signed by myself & Oona Grimes, with additional material, for sale. As well as trade copies.

Kevin Ring, as you know, is publishing ‘American Smoke’, a revised extract from GHOST MILK.

And Mr Jones Watches are launching the Compass Road watch that I’ve designed.

I’ve written an introduction for ‘Scamp’ by Roland Camberton (aka Henry Cohen), which has just been reissued by New London Editions (PO Box 8786, Nottingham NG1 9AW). Along with ‘Rain on the Pavements’.

Meanwhile, I’m working with Barney Rowntree on a programme about weather for BBC Radio 4. And researching bicycles for the London Review of Books.
