The Man Booker Slam
Doors open at 6.30p.m. for a 7.30p.m. start
After something of a sabbatical, Book Slam is finally back and teaming up with the Man Booker Prize and the wonderful House of St Barnabas to celebrate the most prestigious gong in literature in advance of the black tie shindig. Guests include nominees PAUL BEATTY, for hilarious and terrifying satire, ‘The Sellout’, and OTTESSA MOSHFEGH, for the utterly remarkable ‘Eileen’. There’s also beautiful songs from the LONDON INTERNATIONAL GOSPEL CHOIR, our favourite storyteller named after an ursus maritimus, POLARBEAR (courtesy of our friends at Apples and Snakes), and our favourite writer named after items not reduced in price (think about it) SALENA GODDEN. All profits go to House of St Barnabas.
