Books Show Off 8

Tuesday 13th December 18:30 - 22:00 at London - Tottenham Court Road

Join us for the 8th iteration of BOOKS SHOW OFF - our chaotic open mic night all about books!

The acts are...

Rebecca Rideal – Historian Rebecca Rideal is the author of last summer’s top holiday beach read, 1666: Plague, War and Hellfire.

Simon Watt – Simon is a biologist, writer, science communicator, comedian and TV presenter, perhaps best known as a presenter on the BAFTA winning documentary series Inside Nature’s Giants and the Channel 4 special The Elephant: Life After Death.

Helen Pilcher – Helen’s Bring Back the King, is the book for you if you’ve ever fancied having a pet dinosaur (just us?). The science writer and comedian will explain the pitfalls and practicalities of de-extinction (it’s an actual thing) and ponders whether or not Elvis could be resurrected from the DNA inside a pickled wart. Are you clonesome tonight?

Ann Morgan – Literary explorer Ann Morgan read a book from every country in the world in 2012 and continues to blog about her reading adventures. Her debut novel, Beside Myself, is the story of twins who swap places in a childhood game and get trapped in the wrong lives. The perfect dark family tale for when relatives get on your nerves over the festive season.

Joanne Paul – Joanne is a Lecturer in Early Modern History at the University of Sussex. Her book, Thomas More, seeks to examine this controversial figure as a thinker and writer, uncovering his central beliefs and arguments.

Plus more from Helen Keen, Jonathan Howard, and Sarah Bee
