For October's Faber Social, co-hosted with Heavenly Recordings, we invite you to an evening celebrating the UNREAL CITY that is London.
Michael Smith and Andrew Weatherall perform from their new release Unreal City. Ben Watt talks about his forthcoming book, Romany and Tom. Lloyd Bradley takes us on a historical tour through black music in the capital. And Hanif Kureishi, London's ultimate chronicler in fiction, reads from new fiction.
As if that isn't enough, the evening concludes with our greatest pop writer Jon Savage interviewing our greatest dj and producer, Andrew Weatherall.
Doors 7pm, event starts at 8pm.
When & Where
Faber & Faber is one of the great independent publishing houses in London. We were established in 1929 by Geoffrey Faber and our first editor was T. S. Eliot. We are proud to publish prize-winning fiction and non-fiction, as well as an unrivalled list of modern poets and playwrights. Among our list of writers we have six Booker Prize winners and twelve Nobel Laureates, and we continue to seek out the most exciting and innovative writers at work today.
