There's an event going on in London on October 26th which sounds so much fun! Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it but I definitely would if I was in the area, so if you're a book lover (and if you're not, um, why are you here?) take a look at the below press release and see if it takes your fancy:
STAND UP FOR BOOKS – HALLOWEEN THEME
DATE: 26TH OCTOBER 2012
VENUE: The George on the Strand
PRICE: £3 (If you have a Society of Young Publishers or The Society of Authors membership)
£5 for non members
Entry on the door or pre-book via The Society of Young Publishers website: http://www.thesyp.org.uk/eventinfo.php?id=489
Stand up for Book is a quarterly event organised by The Society of Young Publishers and The Society of Authors. We aim to create an entertaining and welcoming literary evening for all book lovers who want to champion unpublished authors alongside star published names.
With Halloween just around the corner we thought it only natural to theme this month’s event on all things spooky.
Our confirmed line up this month includes:
· Brighton based author James Dawson, whose debut contemporary chiller Hollow Pike sent waves through the YA genre earlier this year. (Published by Indigo books – imprint of Orion publishing.)
· Rock journalist turned author, dubbed the first lady of noir, Cathi Unsworth. Her first novel The Not Knowing was published in 2005 and her most recent release Weirdo delves into notions of cults and pure madness – a work of unforgettable Eastern Gothic.
· Debut author Kat Darby who’s novel The Unpierced Heart has been called a gothic gem with flavours of Wilkie Collins and Arthur Conan Doyle. Her fiction has been read on BBC radio and has published stories in a whole host of magazines including Slice, Mslexia and The London Magazine.
