Join us for readings by author Leone Ross and conversation with editor Jeremy Poynting as we celebrate the launch of Leone’s new short story collection, Come Let Us Sing Anyway (published 6 June) at the Northern Short Story Festival on Saturday 3 June, 5.45pm at the Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds.

From headless schoolgirls, to talking food and threesomes, pretty much anything can (and will) happen in these witty, weird and wonderful world short stories. Ranging from flash fiction to intense psychological drama, magical realism and erotica, these strange, clever and beautifully crafted stories may sometimes tickle, sometimes shock; but will always engage both the intellect and the heart.

Leone Ross is a novelist, short story writer, editor and lecturer in fiction writing. She was born in England and grew up in Jamaica. Leone Ross is the critically acclaimed author of the Orange Prize shortlisted novels All the Blood Is Red and Orange Laughter.
