High Spirits: A Round of Drinking Stories will be launched by editors Karen Stevens and Jonathan Taylor at the NAWE Conference 2018 in York on Saturday 10th November:
“18.00pm Launch: High Spirits: A Round of Drinking Stories, ed. Karen Stevens and Jonathan Taylor
From folk songs to classical art songs, from Purcell to Schubert to Verdi to Mahler to Orff, there is a long and well-known tradition of “Drinking Songs.” The same goes for “Drinking Poems.” This anthology taps into another, less-well-known, yet equally powerful, tradition: that of the “Drinking Story.” Edited with an introduction by Karen Stevens and Jonathan Taylor, contributors include some of the best short story writers in the UK today: Judith Allnatt, Jenn Ashworth, Laurie Cusack, Desmond Barry, Louis de Bernières, Jane Feaver, Cathy Galvin, Alison Moore, Kate North, Bethan Roberts, Jane Roberts, Hannah Stevens, Michael Stewart, David Swann, Melanie Whipman, and Sue Wilsea.”

In February 2019, High Spirits will be launched at The Word Factory at Waterstones Piccadilly. Booking details.
