weathering station is a weekly programme of live streamed conversations with authors. prior to each conversation, we will share a link to access the text/extract/chapter that we will discuss. as there is no possibility at the moment for us to gather and have a drink, we see weathering station as a modest contribution to "weather" the situation some of us are currently facing, and we hope these sessions can offer a way of coming together.
