London 2 Year Anniversary Meetup & other sundry announcements.

If you’re in Chicago, and you’re free on Tuesday night, come hear me read a story at This Much Is True. 7:30 pm, Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, 3905 N Lincoln Ave. Doors open at 7 pm, no cover or door charge. I’ll most likely read the astronaut story if you want to read along at home, and there will be other writers sharing true tales.

Speaking of stories, Dana Norris, founder of Story Club, is doing an advice column at Role/Reboot and is actively seeking questions. Ethics and good taste forbid me from directly forwarding her half my inbox, but go! Get in on the ground floor! Email is deardana AT rolereboot DOT com  ORG. She specifically requested questions about FEELINGS.

And now, the big thing: The London Awkwardeers are celebrating two years of monthly socializing. From organizer Kate:

Two years!  Incredible!  December London meetup as follows:

Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX near Waterloo station, 13th December, 11am onwards.

Amazingly, the group has now been running for two years, and this will be our 25th meeting.  Also it’s the holiday season.

Therefore, 2nd birthday/Christmas/holiday/Saturday party!

Please bring and share food if you want to – any and all food is welcome, please just bring an ingredients list so that people can check for intolerances and other restrictions.  And if it’s messy food, please bring trays/plates/napkins.  🙂

This venue is working out really well.

They sell food in a cafe (standard sandwiches etc.), but they also don’t mind people bringing food in from outside. There are several other local places where you can buy stuff as well. The excellent food market outside has loads of different food options, which can fit most food requirements, or you can also bring a packed lunch.
Meet on the fourth floor, outside the Blue Bar (go up in the JCB lift, lift 7, which is bright yellow and quite musical).

Here is the internal map of the Royal Festival Hall:

I will have my Cthulhu with me, which looks like this:  One time I forgot it but I will do my best this time, however if I forget again I will put up a sign. I have long brown hair and glasses.

The venue is accessible via a lift, and has accessible toilets.

The London Awkward group has a Facebook page, which is here:  There is also a thread in the new forums for saying hello.

Incredible work, Kate & fellow London people.
