Louis de Bernieres to attend Shoreditch House Literary Salon

27th January 2010

A number of prominent writers have been lined up to front the next Shoreditch House Literary Salon.

The event, which is sponsored by law firm Thomas Eggar LLP, will feature appearances from Captain Corelli's Mandolin author Louis de Bernieres and Disobedience writer Naomi Alderman, as well as organiser and host BBC Radio 4 playwright Damian Barr.

Taking place on January 28th at the private members club, the salon will allow aspiring writers and literature fans to interact 'socially and intellectually' with the panel.

Nicola Plant, head of the sport and media team at Thomas Eggar LLP, pointed out that literary salons have their roots in the 18th century and provide a good opportunity for budding authors to learn from masters of the craft.

Barr added: 'The Shoreditch House Literary Salons have been a huge success since starting in October 2008. The attendees leave feeling intellectually and socially stimulated and part of a privileged scene.'

Last month, the Observer suggested that the literary salon is returning to the UK in force and pointed out that regular events are being held in locations such as Soho House, The Quay restaurant in Ilfracombe and the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh.
