On 7 May we were joined virtually by Polly Paulusma who presented a taster of her latest album, Invisible Music, which celebrates musicality in the prose of Angela Carter, one of the twentieth century’s finest novelists and a former member of The London Library.

On what would have been Carter’s 80th birthday, Paulusma illustrated how Carter – herself a folk singer during the 1960s folk revival - absorbed the themes, images and rhythms of folk song into her remarkable prose. We were also joined by singer songwriter Kathryn Williams and author Kirsty Logan who performed readings of Carter's work.
