Book Slam

Sun 1 Jan 2012

To mark the publication of its first anthology One for the Trouble (a collection of short stories and poems inspired by song titles), London’s first/best/only literary nightclub takes a special sojourn to the city-by-the-sea. Book Slam is a monthly celebration of storytelling in all its forms, presenting top authors and poets in a relaxed and intimate ambience.

Tonight’s special Brighton line-up features Bookershortlisted novelist Jon McGregor reading from his new book This Isn't The Sort of Thing That Happens to Someone Like You; Scottish novelist and poet Jackie Kay sharing her latest collection of luminous short stories Reality, Reality; and Sapphire, the sensational US poet and author of Push (filmed as Precious) and The Kid. Hosted by Francesca Beard and featuring acclaimed acoustic soul Ninja Tune artist Andreya Triana.
