The Book of Birmingham Reading, Cherry Reds

10 Dec 2018

10 December 2018, 7 - 9pm 

This very special evening at Cherry Reds in central Birmingham will celebrate our new 'Reading the City' release 'The Book of Birmingham' in its true home! Join contributing authors C.D. Rose, Sibyl Ruth, Malachi McIntosh and Alan Beard as they read from their stories featured in the collection, each one telling a different perspective of the UK's 'second' city across varying moments of recent history. Editor Kavita Bhanot will also be there to read from the collection's introduction, which contextualises the anthology as a showcase of the breadth and diversity of Birmingham. 

'Few cities have undergone such a radical transformation over the last few decades as Birmingham. Culturally and architecturally, it has been in a state of perpetual flux and regeneration, with new communities moving in, then out, and iconic post-war landmarks making way for brighter-coloured, 21st century flourishes. Much like the city itself, the characters in the stories gathered here are often living through moments of profound change, closing in on a personal or societal turning point, that carries as much threat as it does promise.'

This event is FREE.
