Although the event is not strictly in Walthamstow, it is easily accessible from E17 and looks interesting. Ellen is an American-born Scottish writer who moved to the UK in 1971. She came out in the mid-1970s and will be discussing what it was like to be the author of contemporary lesbian fiction in the 1980s and 1990s. Ellen will also be reading from her 1993 work, ‘The Dyke and the Dybbuk’.
The event runs from 7.45pm-8.45pm and is free. You can just turn up on the day, or book a place by phoning the library on 020 8496 1070.
