With Christopher Eccleston, Martyn Bedford and David Waddington
Housmans Bookshop and Comma Press are delighted to host two online events with renowned British actors Christopher Eccleston and Maxine Peake reading from protest-inspired stories published in Comma’s History-into-Fiction series, Protest.

The two events will take place on two consecutive dates, with Christopher reading on the 9th of February and Maxine on the 10th. Both readings will be followed by a conversation between authors and historians discussing the events depicted in the stories read by Christopher and Maxine.

Christopher will be reading ‘Withen’ by Martyn Bedford, a story about the Battle of Orgreave, during the 1984-85 miners’ strike. The reading will be followed by a discussion with author Martyn Bedford and academic David Waddington who has published widely on Britain’s mining communities.
