Thanks to all who came along last night for a hot and sultry Other Room. Our next event is in the cool of early October and it’s a really special one. We’re very pleased to be hosting Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee, over from the US. Maggie O’Sullivan completes the line-up to make a real power trio. Hope to see you there.
Why not pop along to the Carcanet summer book sale tomorrow before coming along to our event which starts at 7pm. More details about that on our events page.
