Event description

Description

I've written a book! Who knew how much blood, sweat and sitting still would go into it's creation - but at last, it is done! It has been without a doubt the greatest creative journey of my little life. The book is called 'The Pants Of Perspective' and I cannot wait to share it with you all.


- WHERE DO I NEED TO BE? -

The Peckham Pelican is a super cool, chilled out artsy bar/cafe which serves delicious pizza and craft beers.


- HOW DO I GET THERE? -

Via magic carpet of course! Ah, your carpet is in for a service? Okay then...

  • From Victoria Station: Take a 12 minute train to Peckham Rye station. The Pelican is a 15 minute walk from there.

  • From the City/ bank station: Get the Northern line to Elephant and Castle and hop on a bus, or walk.

  • From the South West London / Richmond area: Get National Rail to Clapham Junction, and hop on the Overland rail to Peckham Rye. Walk from there.

Or... walk, run, pogo-stick, cycle, skateboard...


- WHEN DOES THIS GUARANTEED FUN OCCUR? -

Kicking off at 7pm on Thursday 27th July


- WHAT CAN I EXPECT? -

A relaxed, fun and super chilled storytelling evening. Throughout the night I'll be taking to the stage for short intervals to read some of my favourite extracts from the book. There'll even be some characters from the book in the bar too, so you can ask them whether I just made it all up.

We'll also be holding a raffle (everyone loves a raffle) with the chance to win a range of outdoors and adventure goodies. So bring a fiver to buy a strip of tickets if you'd like to play.

All proceeds from the raffle will go towards the soon to be launched 'Adventure Queen' grant. Which will offer support to one girl/woman per year in sending them on their very first, life changing adventure.


- TICKET OPTIONS -

  1. A 'Book only' ticket will get you in for the night, an audience with yours truly and a signed copy of the book to take home and curl up with.

  2. A 'Pants special' ticket will get you a copy of the book, an audience with moi and a pair of 'Pants Of Perspective'.

Bring your ticket - printed, or on your phone - to collect your goodies from one of the magical adventure elves on the night.


- DRESS CODE -

Please come wearing the brightest 'pants' you own. By pants I mean trousers. Athough you can of course wear your pants over your trousers if you so wish - we don't judge around here.


- TO WHET YOUR WHISTLE -

Here's the book's back cover blurb:

When I ran, I ran for pleasure. I didn’t run for times, to win, to impress: I ran for me. When I ran my bum cheeks rubbed together, so much so that if I was going on a long run I’d have to ‘lube up’. I maintained that I was not a ‘real’ runner – I just liked to run so that I could eat cake.

Anna was never anything like those ‘real’ runners on telly – all spindly limbs, tiny shorts and split times – but when she read about New Zealand’s 3,000-kilometre-long Te Araroa Trail, she began to wonder… perhaps being a ‘real’ runner was overrated. Maybe she could just run it anyway?

Travelling alone through New Zealand’s backcountry for 148 days, she scrambled through forests, along ridge-lines, over mountain passes, along beaches and across swollen rivers. Running up to 52 kilometres in a day, she slept wild most nights, and was taken into the homes and hearts of the kiwi people in between.

The Pants of Perspective is a witty, colourful and at times painfully raw account of a journey to the edge of what a woman believes herself to be capable of. It is a coming-of-age story which will lead you on a roller coaster ride through fear, vulnerability, courage and failure. For anyone who has ever dreamt of taking on a great challenge, but felt too afraid to begin – this story is for you.


I LOOK FORWARDS TO SEEING YOU THERE!
