Great night on Friday at Treadwell’s Bookshop in Store Street, London WC1. It was both a convenient location and ideal venue which I would thoroughly recommend. People either gathered in the bookshop on the ground floor or came down to the basement to listen to readings and partake in the refreshments. Authors including Philip Terry, Emma Kittle-Pey, Mark Brayley, Sara Elena Rossetti, Maurizio Ascari and me gave readings and a few new authors including Laura Tosi, Peter Hunt and Robert Ronsson were present. Afterwards a few of us repaired to The Life Goddess, a very good Greek restaurant and deli a few doors down which was most enjoyable!
Authors and artists who participated in the event had this to say:
Maurizio: The launch went very well and we really enjoyed the dinner! Thank you for everything you did to organize this beautiful event!!!
Sara: I am writing to thank you so much for the most beautiful evening you organised, an event which was a great success! There were lots of people there and everyone seemed enthusiastic and happy to participate; listen and get to know Patrician Press. The Greek restaurant was also very good and it was lovely for us to be all together, even if I would have liked to have stayed a little longer with you. (Sara flew back very early next morning to Milan as she had an English class to teach in the afternoon!)
Mark: Just a quick note to say thank you for Friday night. I really enjoyed myself and Bernie and I are very grateful for dinner. It was good to meet the other authors too.
Emma tweeted: Another great launch!
Peter: We would like to thank you VERY much for your amazing hospitality on Friday. The presentations were very interesting – you have a highly talented stable, which we are pleased to be part of – and the meal was excellent …
Tim: Thanks for the gig – quite a good turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy it… anyway, thanks for a lovely evening – really liked Treadwells…
