Next Cafe- Friday 7th July Mike Payton and Rachel Murray
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? At four years old, Mike was informed by his older brother that he had been born a pig but adopted by kindly humans. The existential angst caused by this kindly remark and the further trials of sibling rivalry are explored as Mike searches for echoes (and possibly understanding) in a series of beautiful, disturbing and thoughtful tales.
Sisters Are Doing it For Themselves. O Brother, there are so many stories of dashing heroes saving the day but what about the women? Feisty girls and clever heroines abound in folklore and Rachel will be shining a light on some of their exploits.
