Book Slam East @ St John on Bethnal Green
Omies, palones and those of other persuasion, Book Slam is back and lit like a vogue in the dilly munge!
Ever celebrating the mystery of language to say nothing of the arts oratorical, we welcome some of the finest communicators currently communicating. These include our old mucker RICHARD MILWARD, saluting the publication of his new novel Man-Eating Typewriter, written in Polari and already chosen as a Guardian highlight for 2023.
Add in BENET BRANDRETH, barrister, novelist, rhetoric coach to the RSC, and two-time winner of the World Public Speaking Competition (“one of our nation’s most-accomplished raconteurs,” gushes the Sunday Telegraph) and one can expect a veritable feast linguistic.
Host is award-winning comedian and self-styled knucklehead, FELICITY WARD, while music comes from ROSIE FRATER-TAYLOR whose acclaimed second album, Bloom, blurs the lines between jazz, folk, pop and soul.
