THESE SEVEN – On Tour

TramGigAs a grand finale to the build up for Friday’s announcement about Nottingham’s UNESCO City of Literature bid, representatives of These Seven and other Nottingham writers took to the tracks to travel the city’s tram network, giving public readings and, more importantly, giving away books. Naturally many thought it was a scam and brushed aside the offer of free literature, but several hundred copies were gratefully accepted by the travelling public and in the Old Market Square.

While they read and dispensed, I sat on board trying to sketch a crude record of the event while the tram gently lurched through the city, finishing the image off in Beeston’s White Lion, where we came to rest, read aloud and troughed.
