Thanks to Kit Caless of the brilliant Influx Press for posting this photo of me reading ‘The Holborn Cenotaph’ on the Speakers’ Corner stage at London Radical Bookfair at Goldsmiths on Saturday.

I love this rudimentary stage—a carpet, a brolly and a battery-powered PA—created by Speakers’ Corner programmer Vicky Samuels. It did the job, providing a focus for the crowds that gathered outside the fair, and it was great to share this platform with speakers including Helen Corry of the #bursaryorbust campaign, and others.

If you missed the London Radical Bookfair this time around, follow them on Twitter and make a date for next year ;)
