Kit de Waal has brought together thirty-three established and emerging writers who invite you to experience the world through their eyes, their voices loud and clear as they reclaim and redefine what it means to be working class. Working-class stories are not always tales of the underprivileged and dispossessed. Common People is a collection of essays,poems and memoir written in celebration, not apology: these are narratives rich in barbed humour, reflecting the depth and texture of working-class life, the joy and sorrow, the solidarity and the differences.
We will be joined here at Five Leaves by contributor Anita Sethi (The Guardian, Observer, and judge of this year’s Costa Book Awards. She;s also been birdwatching with Margaret Atwood!). Other speakers to be confirmed.
There will be readings from the book as well as a discussion of the use of crowdfunding as a way of getting diverse books published.
Tickets: £3.00 on the door, including refreshments. Please let us know you are coming on firstname.lastname@example.org
