Tangled Roots anthology launch and performance

The Tangled Roots anthology was launched last night at Seven Arts, Leeds, accompanied by a performance of blended stories from five of the writers: Michelle Scally Clarke, Seni Seneviratne, Jane Steele, Adam Lowe, and myself.

Due to the fact that the theatre space roof had collapsed the night before, we were forced to improvise what would have been a more theatrical rehearsed piece in the café bar. We dubbed this performance, Tangled Roots: the Radio Play. It seemed to work. And with broadcaster Nick Ahad among the contributing writers perhaps a radio treatment could even be a possibility? (nudge nudge ;)).

The book itself features further writings on the subject of inter-racial Yorkshire love from Emily Midorikawa, Desiree Reynolds, Audrey Dewjee, Abiola Awojobi-Johnson, Chloë Anderson, Theeda Winter, Cassandra Henry, Eve Ahmed and project devisor/producer Katy Massey.

The book can be ordered from the website.

Happy World Book Day!
