Sheila Heti at The Rag Factory

Thursday 2nd May 2013 6:30pm - 9:30pm The Rag Factory Literary Event, Chargeable Event

What did you want to be as a child? Fire fighter, astronaut... celebrity dragon known for magical deeds? Well, let Literary Dinners take you back, as we get childish and act out at the Rag Factory with Sheila Heti. For one night only, small talk and mundanity will be put aside in favour of 'got got need', lofty dreams and squabbling over the last flump.

Much lauded and chit-chatted about, Sheila will be centre stage as we try and answer the question from her fictional memoir How Should a Person Be? Accompanied by colourful drawings and a gob-smacking menu from the delectable Kosher Roast, Sheila will be on hand as literary therapist for the evening.

Our resident maitre'd fictionistas will bring chewed Crayolas and well-thumbed stage plays on request. Tickets include food and literary entertainment. Menu to be announced.

Tickets: £30, available at
