SNUG was launched in London on June 26th, at Blackwell’s Bookshop on the Charing Cross Road (in fact, the last event ever to take place there, as they are soon to move to a smaller venue). Over fifty people turned up, the composer and lyricist Karl Lewkowicz did a great introduction, the Senegalese musician Kadialy Kouyate played fantastically well, the live readings were live readings, the trailer was screened, and the Catalan wine – or most of it – was drunk. My thanks to Karl, Kadialy, the journalist Lorena Cervera (for the filming and technical support), the scriptwriter Martin Smith (for invaluable help on the day) and Amelia from Blackwell’s, for making everything so easy. These are the first pictures of the event. (By Lorena Cervera).
