diisonance launch

We had a really enjoyable and successful launch of diisonance last Friday at The Gallery Cafe, Bethnal Green. There were some powerful and provocative readings, copies of the book were sold and there was a good audience, including some very old friends.

Many thanks to all who came along and supported the diisonance book and project.

There are many more photos on @haulpawkins & @H_G_Press twitter accounts.
