There’s only a week to go until To End All Wars arrives on the shelves. After over eighteen months of pretty much eating, sleeping and breathing this book it’s slightly strange to now let it out into the laps of the public. Everyone involved from the creators to the good folk at Soaring Penguin are very excited about finally being able to share it, and in celebration of everyone’s efforts we’ve organised a few launch events that will be taking place around the country.
As we mentioned before, on the 30th of July there will be a launch at the Five Leaves bookshop in Nottingham, and will feature presentations by contributors Brick, Pippa Hennessey, Selina Lock and Ian Douglas.
On August the 2nd we’ll be opening an exhibition of art from the book at the Pen’rallt Bookshop & Gallery in Machynlleth in mid-Wales. As well as featuring art from the book and the original painting of the cover, there’ll be a focus on Jonathan Clode’s story The Black Chair, which he’ll be introducing along with a reading of the script from local actors.
The official launch party will then be held at Gosh! comics in Soho, London on the 20th of August. The launch will be attended by the editors and as many of the writers, artists and letterers as can get there, so please come along!
Today also saw a fantastic article published by BBC Scotland that focuses on the Scottish creators and some of the stories that focus on the Scots.
