Launch of Book Slam Vol. II (East)
Celebrating the launch of 'Book Slam Vol.II', the diptych of our triptych (to coin a meaningless phrase) teamed some of the country's finest comic minds, including Jesse Armstrong (co-writer of The Thick Of It, Peep Show, Fresh Meat and Four Lions), the literary whirlwind that is Salena Godden and all round good egg, bad seed, writer, comedian and Twitteratus, Peter Serafinowicz. And there was live music from the 25 piece Basement Orchestra.
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.
