For Books’ Sake Presents: The 2nd Birthday Bash

7th Sep 2012


As you might have seen last week, we’ve just turned two. So we’re having a party to celebrate! We’re teaming up with BookMachine for our 2nd birthday bash, taking place at The Star & Garter in Manchester on Friday 12th October 2012.

We’d love you to come along for booze, birthday cake, live literary performances and party games aplenty, with the shenanigans in store including:

– Short story writer Zoe Lambert, author of The War Tour. Zoe is one of ten authors featured in the For Books’ Sake pulp fiction collection, Short Stack.

– Poet and performance artist Claire Robertson, featured at For Books’ Sake Presents: Books & Blues at Chorlton Arts Festival.

– Novelist Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Hungry, The Stars and Everything, featured at the For Books’ Sake’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Not Part of Festival.

Les Malheureux, a live literature collaboration between writers Sarah-Clare Conlon and David Gaffney, combining music, storytelling and visuals to create something stranger than fiction.

Plus prizes, suprises, and lots more, all for free!
The Star & Garter is located on Fairfield Street, about a minute’s walk (if that!) from Manchester Piccadilly train station, as well as parking, bus routes, trams and taxi ranks. For directions and a map, click here.
Want in? Sign up via Eventbrite to RSVP. And do it soon, because we can’t wait to celebrate with you.
Live too far away to make it to Manchester in October? Come and see us at the Thames Festival in London this weekend instead.
