The link between the Settle to Carlisle line and the Ilkley Literature Festival!

Click HERE to hear an interview on the Arachne Press website where my fellow-author Peter Cooper and I talk about what it’s been like putting together this fringe event for the 40th Ilkley Literature Festival – a festival that just gets better every year, and also believes in supporting local authors like us by having a thriving fringe programme.

Look out for references to the Settle to Carlisle line (a real gem to have on my doorstep and by far the nicest way to travel into the Dales) and to a lovely, generous ex-railwayman in Settle who has lent us his original station hats to wear for the event! Here’s a photo of me trying one of them on at home:

It’s on the 15th October, 9-10pm at Ilkley Playhouse. We can promise you a brief but amusing and varied journey through some selected highlights of trains and railways popping up in literature.

We will also read from Stations, published by Arachne Press.

AND that free cake we keep mentioning is kindly provided by Exquisite Handmade Cakes of Leeds – delicious enough to come for that alone!
