Launch of Book Slam Vol. II (South)
We kicked off what we tentatively titled 'Three Events In Three Days To Launch Too Much Too Young: Book Slam Vol. II' with a right royal knees up at The Clapham Grand. Guests included two of our most illustrious alumni: author of '26a', 'The Wonder' and Princess of Sydenham, Diana Evans, and the man behind the brilliance of 'One Day', the most debonair David this side of Niven, His Excellency David Nicholls. Plus, the truly dazzling musical talent that is Marques Toliver and laughs from our favourite stand-up who doubles as an occidental imagining of the Christ, Dan Antoplski.
The Book Slam Annual collects brilliant, newly-commissioned, exclusive writing from some of our favourite alumni into a quite beautiful, limited edition, cloth-bound hardback, each individually numbered and signed by all the authors. 'Too Much Too Young: Book Slam Vol. II' includes new stories by David Nicholls, Diana Evans, Jeremy Dyson, Marina Lewycka, Emylia Hall, Nikesh Shukla, Jesse Armstrong, Jackie Kay, Craig Taylor, Patrick Neate, Salena Godden and Chris Cleave.
