1. OWN IT! Presents Courttia Newland’s A River Called Time at Shoreditch House

Join us in the Library for a night of conversations, readings and insight into Courttia Newland’s dystopian multiverse. Newland will be talking to That Reminds Me author Derek Owusu about his book, A River Called Time, which has been shortlisted for the Arthur C Clarke Award. Set in an alternate world where slavery and colonialism never happened, A River Called Time is at once a timely exploration of social inequality and a story about love and the search for the truth.

2. Books for Breakfast: James Brown and Richard Kilgarriff at 76 Dean Street

Meet the man who changed the face of magazine publishing forever – and lived to tell a tale of sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll. James Brown was a reporter at NME when he became the founding editor of Loaded, the most influential title of its time, before taking on the editor’s role at GQ, where his hedonistic lifestyle finally brought him crashing down to earth. Hosted by Bookomi’s Richard Kilgarriff, this session candidly recounts tales of excess, peppered with original insights on the state of media and celebrity in the UK.

Since then, Andrews has developed a unique style of cooking that’s heavily influenced by the use of fire and the landscapes, habitats and wildlife of the forest.
