Books Show Off 5

Wednesday 28th September 2016
19:00 - 23:00 at Waterstones, London - Tottenham Court Road

Books Show Off on Tottenham Court Road is regretfully an absolute bestseller so now we’re back for chapter FIVE!

Join comedian Steve Cross and eight wonderful people who write books, read books, love them, collect them, or sometimes just visit their local Waterstones because they really like the smell (not mentioning any names).

Affectionately known as London’s first chaotic open-mic night about books, Books Showoff is unapologetically raucous, irreverent, and hysterical.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start.

Speakers include:

Lucy Talbot - Lucy is a maudist. Find out why the original Harold and Maude novella is the best therapy ever.

Claire Thomson - By day, mild manner academic. By night, part of a crack team of women operating a clandestine Scandinavian publishing house. Once accidentally published a book with the word "ARSE" on the cover.

Nolan Parker - Candice Nola and Phil Parker didn't inded to write a novel. They never planned to spend time in the office creating scenes of pole dancing, rioting scientists or tractor chases. But then they didn't know what Michael Gove had planned for them...

M. L. Rio - M. is a writer, former bookseller and long time theatre nerd. She just finished her Masters in Shakespeare at Kings College, and her first novel, If We Were Villains, will be published by Flatiron Books in 2017.

Gauti Sigthorsson - the evils of textbooks are well known to Gauti. He should know. He wrote one

Beck Littlechilds - Becky's going to talk about the sub-cultural behemoth I Kissed Dating Goodbye, the magical Good, spiritual orgasms and the Celibacy Crusade.

Plus more from Ana Parejo Vadillo, and Anna Scott
