The second meeting of the Wanstead Social Distance Club is going to be a real treat. Crime author Alison Turner, known to Wansteadium readers as Anya Lipska, will be reading a chapter from her soon-to-be published new novel Body Language, written under the name AK Turner.
The club is an online meeting for any Wansteadium readers at which local figures are speaking about a variety of topics. Our first meeting on Monday of this week was a triumph and proved to us that events can take place successfully on Zoom.
Alison has been a great supporter of cultural events in Wanstead, including Fringe events for many years. Her series of crime novels featuring Kershaw and Kiszka were set in locations which were familiar to Wanstead readers.
Her new heroine, Cassie Raven, works as a mortuary assistant in Camden, and was featured in a short story broadcast on BBC Radio 4 last year.
And in a mini-scoop for Wansteadium, this is a first look at the cover of the book, which is being published in November.
You can join the meeting on Monday 6 April at 5pm via this link.
