EastLife Book Launch Event, 25th May 2016, Stratford Circus

On this jam-packed and wonderful evening, we not only launched EastLife with an introduction from the editors Tessa McWatt, Stephen Maddison and Sam Dodd, as well as extracts from Jo Lazar & Craig Britton, but we saw the launch of The Gallion too, a student-led creative writing anthology, and heard work from graduating students Raisa Hassan, Charlotte Bone, Amir Aziz, Jack Conlon & Justin Tuijl. The CityLife Writer team also raised £170.27 on their book sale table for Richard House! The jam-packed evening was hosted by the inimitable Jacob Sam La Rose, and our guest speaker was Linton Kwesi Johnson. Photo credits and a huge thanks to Roy Wilson for kindly donating his talent and time to take these photographs for us. Read more about the event on our News & Events page. Thanks to all who came – especially the EastLife Writer team and our community elders!
