Book review time. I first met Janine Booth when she was 16, when she came to interview me at a gig the night Brighton reached the FA Cup final in 1983, which means I don’t remember much about it.
Click here to read this sad but fitting tribute to Bob Crow from UNISON activist Rosalind Hanmer, who had talked with Bob at the launch of Janine's book 'Plundering London Underground' a few weeks before his death.
Janine will be the feature writer at February's Loose Muse - the Poetry Society's monthly women's night at the Poetry Cafe, Betterton Street, Covent Garden. Janine will be performing poetry and reading extracts from her books, Guilty and Proud of It and Plundering London Underground, and answering audience questions.
There is also another feature writer and an open mic, so you get to hear lots of talented writers and readers.
Venue: Effra Social, 89 Effra Road, London SW2 1DF
