We at Golden Hare Books love to champion small presses with big ideas, and this event, with new London-based 3 of Cups Press, is no exception. Their brilliant new series begins with On Anxiety, an essay collection that brings together multiple unique voices to discuss the nature of anxiety, and how we cope with it. If you liked Nasty Women, if you’re interested in small presses and diverse voices, then this is an event for you.
Come along for a glass of wine, to hear four brilliant readers talk about their experiences and read from the collection.
Anxiety. Worry, fear, longing, impatience. One word can mean so many things, be it the medical term for a mental health condition or a colloquialism for various forms of stress.
Anxiety has affected all of us in one way or another; that’s why we chose it as the theme for our first book, which you now have an opportunity to buy and bring to life. On Anxiety is a collection of short fiction, essays, poetry and art around anxiety in all its various guises, featuring over twenty artists exploring them.
‘I loved this. It does what only the best writing can and shuts out all the noise. Its devastatingly true and wonderfully put together.’
