Reading at Jewish Book Week

If any of you are in London in two weeks' time, Feb 22, I will be taking part in an event at Jewish Book Week. In the illustrious company of writers Tamar Yellin, Michelle Wandor and Karen Maitland, I will be reading an extract from my short story, Boiling, at the launch of World Jewish Relief's charity short story anthology, The Sea of Azov.
For more information and how to book tickets, click here. It would be great to meet up with some of you in person!

This from the event description:
Join us to help launch World Jewish Relief's first ever collection of short stories. Jewish and non-Jewish writers from Britain, Israel and North America - including Ali Smith and Nicole Krauss - have come together to support WJR and to tell their tales, trying to make fictional sense of the previous century and the century just beginning to evolve. This book has been given the title of The Sea of Azov, after both the birthplace of Chekhov, that consummate master of the short story, and the site of one of WJR's campaigns to support distressed Jewish communities.
