New Writers' Evening with London Book & Screen Week

Monday 13th April 2015 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

London Book & Screen Week kicks off at Foyles Charing Cross with a special event focusing on three of the UK’s hottest debut authors. Join us for an evening of insight into writing and publishing -- and beer and pizza to boot -- with the following New Writers:

 

Jesse Armstrong: The co-creator and writer of the BAFTA Award-winning Peep Show, as well as Fresh Meat, Bad Sugar, Babylon and, with Chris Morris, Four Lions presents his first novel, Love, Sex and Other Foreign Policy Goals. Set in 1994 between the former Yugoslavia and England, Armstrong tells the tale of a gang of good-hearted young people about to set off in a Ford Transit van armed with several sacks of rice and a half-written play -- a play which will light a beacon of peace across the Balkans and, very probably, stop the war.

 

Anna Whitwham: Boxer Handsome is the debut from native Londoner Whitwham, in which protagonist Bobby pits himself against the streets of a largely overlooked capital. Inspired by the author's pugilist grandfather, John Poppy, Boxer Handsome is about growing up tough in East London, and finding opponents both in and out of the ring, as Bobby fights for the heart of traveller girl Theresa.

 

Antonia Honeywell: Returning to Foyles after the launch of her first novel The Ship, Curtis Brown student Honeywell offers an insider's view into the publication process and how she went from being a teacher of ten years to the successful author of this, her dystopian debut. From an apocalyptic London in which survivors shelter in the British Museum and identity card checks abound, sixteen-year-old Lalla follows her visionary father on an ark to salvation -- or something else...

 

Venue: The Auditorium, Level 6

Tickets: Free. To reserve, simply add the required number of tickets to the basket below.
