Desmond Elliott Prize event
Set up in memory of an agent legendary for discovering new writing talent, The Desmond Elliott Prize for New Fiction has a superb record of promoting authors who have gone on to fulfil that early promise. Join the three shortlisted authors, Jenni Fagan (The Panopticon), Ros Barber (The Marlowe Papers) and Gavin Extence (The Universe Versus Alex Woods), as they read from their books, reveal what inspires them and offer some first-hand tips on landing that elusive first book deal.
The evening will be chaired by Robert Collins, deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times.
Venue: the Gallery at Foyles, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
