Summer of Spying by Sarah Armstrong

Exclusive print edition available for our customers

We are thrilled to be involved with this exciting project by one of our favourite local authors, Sarah Armstrong.

Not everyone who is called for jury service gets given a case. When Sarah Armstrong, received a jury summons during the lockdown, she assumed the trial would be cancelled, but it went ahead. Once the case was concluded, Sarah conducted her own online investigation to answer the many questions she was left with about authority, surveillance and belonging.

Here, Sarah details the prosecution and defence evidence presented in court and explains how the experience shaped not just her understanding of what it means to serve on a jury, but also how it exposes the extent to which our modern life is under surveillance.
