Book Slam presents Penguin Live
Doors open at 6.30p.m./ stuff starts 7.30p.m.
Advance tickets are no longer available. There will, however, be plenty of tickets on the door priced at £8 each.
We're teaming up with our friends at Penguin to celebrate a twin hulled launch (a narrative catamaran, if you will), as MOHSIN HAMID cracks the bottle on his new book, 'How To Get Filthy Rich In Rising Asia', and anticipates the release of the film version of his novel, 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist'. Joining him on stage is the multi-talented actor and musician (and star of the movie), RIZ MC; poet ROSS SUTHERLAND, floppy of hair and sharp of tongue; and the haunting musical talent that is NADINE SHAH. All will be hosted by our old mucker - poet, DJ and long distance runner, CHARLIE DARK: a man who puts the 'urban' into 'urbane'.
