Launch of Book Slam Vol. II (West, way West)
Tickets: Free entry on the door.
Book Slam heads to the mild, wild West and the excellent Spike Island in the company of two of of the contributors to 'Too Much Too Young' who once followed the gold rush, and one that didn't: Emylia Hall, author of the quite brilliant debut novel, 'The Book Of Summers', Nikesh Shukla, whose own debut, 'Coconut Unlimited', was shortlisted for the Costa, and our favourite literary maenad, Salena Godden. With music from the exceptional Robin Allender, we will, as Will Smith once put it, 'Be up till sundown, rollin' around/ See the bad guys are found and make 'em lay down'. You'd better believe it.
