For Books' Sake (powered by BookMachine)
Friday, October 12, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 11:00 PM (BST)
Manchester, United Kingdom
For Books' Sake has just turned two, and they're having a party to celebrate. There'll be booze, birthday cake, live literary performances and party games aplenty.
Can't make it to Frankfurt this year? Come along to the Star and Garter in Manchester on Friday 12th October instead, where the shenanigans in store include:
Live performances from:
- Short story writer Zoe Lambert, author of The War Tour. Zoe is one of ten authors featured in the For Books' Sake pulp fiction collection, Short Stack.
- Poet and performance artist Claire Robertson, featured at For Books' Sake Presents: Books & Blues at Chorlton Arts Festival.
- Novelist Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Hungry, The Stars and Everything, featured at the For Books' Sake's Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Not Part of Festival.
- Les Malheureux, a live literature collaboration between writers Sarah-Clare Conlon and David Gaffney, combining music, storytelling and visuals to create something stranger than fiction.
Plus prizes, suprises, and lots more.
The Star & Garter is located on Fairfield Street, about a minute's walk (if that!) from Manchester Piccadilly train station, as well as parking, bus routes, trams and taxi ranks. For directions and a map, click here.
