We’re delighted to announce the return visit of local author, and winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize 2013, Lucy Hughes-Hallett. Her book The Pike – Gabriele D’Anunnzio: Poet, Seducer and Preacher of War is a fascinating and gripping biography of one of the most unique characters of 20th-century history: D’Anunnzio was a highly-regarded poet and journalist, a war hero and, later, a proto-fascist separatist and dictator of the short-lived city-state of Fiume. Find out more about this fascinating character at our reading and signing on Wednesday 26th February at 7pm. For more information, call us on 020 7625 1008 or visit the shop.
We’re extremely excited to host our next evening of literary discussion in Queen’s Park on Thursday 6th February, when local journalist and author Melissa Benn will be discussing her latest book, What Should We Tell Our Daughters, with prominent feminist writier and activist Selma James. Described as “wide-ranging [and] thoughtful” by the Guardian, and “infused with a spirit of creative rebellion” by the Independent, Benn’s book is a chronological examination of female experience, and a manifesto for the development of modern feminism. The event will begin at 6.30pm – for more information, and to reserve your seat, call us on 020 7625 1008, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
