Lots of planets have a North launch at the Tetley, Leeds

Lots of planets have a North, the anthology of writing and art about the north of England that I mentioned in this post, is going to be out very soon.

To celebrate the book's launch there will be an event at the Tetley gallery in Leeds next Friday (the 26th September), which will run from 5 to 7pm.

There will be a series of talks from a number of contributors to the book, including (but not limited to) myself, artist Claire Biddles, urban geographer Emma Jackson, photographer Casey Orr and one of my oldest friends and favourite writers Tessa Norton. I'm going to be talking about Yorkshire's most overlooked landscape, the Humberhead Levels, and the others will cover a huge range of topics encompassing everything from teenage hairstyles to bus cannibalism.

Come along! The event is free, the talks will be fascinating, and if you haven't been to the Tetley yet it's a great gallery and well worth a visit.
