Hosted in partnership with Rough Trade Books, a spectacular evening of readings and conversation to celebrate International Women’s Day, headlined by Salena Godden.

Here’s what we’ve got planned:

Poetry from Sharan Hunjan and Sunnah Khan, who feature in 4 Brown Girls Who Write - the work of a collective of radical, daring performance poets - alongisde Ella Frears, who'll be reading from her haunting and musical collection, I Am The Mother Cat.

Conversation with Emma Warren and Anna Wood exploring the culture and history of modern dance. Emma Warren’s Dance Your Way Home is a social history of the dancefloor; Anna Wood’s debut collection of short stories, Yes Yes More More is a whirlwind, surrealist tour of joy, pleasure, and pop music.

Salena Godden presents Pessimism Is For Lightweights, a work of resistance and protest through beautifully crafted and emotionally complex poetry. Facing sexism, racism, and identity in modern Britain, these are poems for our times.

The talks will be followed by a book signing. Doors open from 6:45pm.

Tickets: £8 General Admission

Venue: The Auditorium (Level 6) at Foyles, 107 Charing Cross Road*

*Please note that the Auditorium at Foyles is fully accessible from the Ground floor lifts.
