New Writing: Elif Batuman and Sally Rooney

Monday 5th June 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Free Event

Grab a beer and a slice of pizza and join two new voices in literary fiction for this month’s New Writing event. Elif Batuman and Sally Rooney will be discussing their experiences writing a novel and the process of getting published for the first time.

Elif Batuman’s first foray into fiction is a novel not just about discovering, but inventing oneself. With superlative emotional and intellectual sensitivity, mordant wit, and pitch-perfect style, The Idiot dramatizes the uncertainty of life on the cusp of adulthood.

Written with gem-like precision and marked by a sly sense of humor, Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney is a story of the pleasures and dangers of youth, and the messy edges of female friendship.

Meet two authors to look out for in 2017, discover the various ways to become a published author and be sure to come ready with your questions.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
Tickets: Fully booked
