What’s Your Granby Story? Book Launch

5th September 2015 at Granby Street Summer Market
Free, No booking required

Granby Four Street Community Land Trust
& Writing on the Wall are proud to present What’s Your Granby Story? 
 
This collection of stories, memoirs, poems and conversations is the first publication to focus exclusively on the Granby area. These new and original pieces were created over a two month period as part of a creative writing and storytelling project. The ultimate intention of What’s Your Granby Story? is to demonstrate the exceptionality of Granby, its rich and important heritage and why, through its highs and lows, it has always been regarded as the heart of Liverpool 8. We feel that this very special book has really achieved that aim and that the outstanding quality of the work reflects the creativity of this community. 
 
Curtis Watt, poet and workshop leader has said of the book,  
‘These memories of Granby Street chronicle the passion and importance of Liverpool's diverse cultural heritage. From stories of poverty, hardship, displacement and isolation, to those of entrepreneurialism, settlement and community, the overall tone is not one of complaint but of tenacity and aspiration. This collection of stories and poems takes you through an emotional theme park. This is an insightful, funny and magical, recalling of what people can achieve through integration. It was a pleasure to be involved in the creation of this book. I'd like to personally thank all who so generously shared their feelings and memories.’
