The Departure (Book Event with Arthur Allen and Vicki Jarret) - Waterstones (Aberdeen) - Aberdeen

Come hear two great writers reading from their latest published work! 6:30pm - 7:30pm, at Waterstones Aberdeen (Units 5/33, Bon Accord Centre)-We at Re-Analogue have always spun words (spoken or printed) through Aberdeen, hoping for something to come from the blast. Sometimes, they detonate beautifully, like seeds on a tongue. Sometimes, they warble on and on and on in the form of Facebook event descriptions. In near-2 years of activity, literature comes up as the main thrum of our core events. Which is why we're delighted to announce our most bookish event to date, in none other than,,,,, A Bookshop(!) We'll be hosting an hour with the poet Arthur Allen and novelist + short story writer VIcki Jarret. Both of their latest offerings deal with the Arctic, but in very different ways. Art's verse novel <> is a fragmentary account of an early-modern voyage to "Meta Incognita", the then-unknown icy top of the world, while Vicki's novel <>, takes place in contemporary Greenland, where the protagonist Isobel surveys melting glaciers - until things take a sinister turn. There will also be a few local acts starting things off, TBA!Come on down, away from the January cold, and warm yourself with words.If that doesn't work, I hear books make for great kindling.**"Waterstones would like to stress that you really shouldn't burn our stock, please, that's illegal" - somebody from Waterstoneshttps://www.waterstones.com/events/re-analogue-presents-vicki-jarrett-and-arthur-adam/aberdeenre.A/EVENT: V#
