Event description

Description

On Thursday 6th July, the Putney Pantry will be welcoming five leading authors for an evening of readings, fine wine and conversation.

Putney Pantry is a beautiful venue adjoining the historic St Mary's Church just on the corner of Putney High Street and Putney Bridge. Chef Issa Cissokho will have a special menu for the evening with a full range of drinks on offer.

The authors will be reading from a variety of works both fiction and non-fiction. We hope this will be a regular feature bringing emerging and established artists to Putney.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. This event is in partnership with Limehouse Books.
