20 December @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for an extra special late night opening and book signing featuring The Gentle Author, Jane Giles and Ali Catterall whose titles all celebrate London – its places, people and cats.
THE LIFE & TIMES OF MR PUSSY – The Gentle Author
Filled with sentiment yet never sentimental, THE LIFE & TIMES OF MR PUSSY is a literary hymn to the intimate relationship between humans and animals.
SCALA CINEMA 1978-1993 – Jane Giles
Scala Cinema 1978-1993 by Jane Giles (FAB Press) Newly published, this lavish large format book tells the story of London’s legendary rep cinema, with over 1000 colour illustrations including every one of the Scala’s iconic monthly programmes from 1978-1993.
BUS FARE – Ali Catterall
Edited by Travis Elborough and (historian and No 19 bus driver) Joe Kerr, Bus Fare is a dizzying ride through two centuries of the London Bus – the real red lifeblood of London – and a celebration of the City and the people who make it what it is. This new anthology, published by the AA, collects stories, poems and illustrations centering around the buses and their routes,
including pieces from Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf, Rudyard Kipling, Iain Sinclair, and Ali Catterall, who’ll be reading his story ‘Time and Relative Dimensions in SW3’, about a real-life encounter on a Number 11, with a certain benevolent, long-scarved alien.
