Bit of an advertisment for my friend Geoff Mead who has a new book out (which I have just ordered) called Coming home to Story: Storytelling Beyond Happy Ever After (with more info here) attracting 5 star reviews on Amazon and central to an interesting story based event in February:
STORYTELLING AND BOOK-MAKING
The Story Museum, Wednesday 1st February, from 5.30pm – 8.00pm
Rochester House, 42 Pembroke Street, Oxford OX1 1BP
(Ten minute walk from Oxford train station)
5.00pm – 5.20pm Optional Tour of the future Story Museum
The book launch will take place at The Story Museum, which celebrates story and storytelling and will open in Oxford in 2014. The Story Museum’s home is not normally open to the public and its transformation into a world-class museum will start this year.
The museum has kindly offered to give us a tour of the future museum building. If you are interested, please let Eka Morgan know:email@example.com. For more information about the museum and what it does, please see their website: www.storymuseum.org.uk.
5.30pm – 6.30pm Bookmaking
We invite you to enter into the alchemy of making your own copy of Coming Home to Story. Over a cup of tea or a glass of wine, guided by printer (and co-op member) Libby Rodger of CPI Antony Rowe, you can craft together the elements of the book – cover, book-block, head and tail bands, brightly-coloured ribbon-markers. For book enthusiasts, it is a perfect opportunity to gain a hands-on insight into the world of book production, and to take home a unique, hand-made volume.
6.45pm onwards Storytelling
Geoff will tell some Grimm’s Tales for Grown-ups, followed by more drinks.
You are welcome to arrive at any of the above times.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 25th January.
