Birmingham Literature Festival: The Book of Birmingham, Launch

Date: 5th October 2018

Time: 6pm

Location: Recital Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

Birmingham is a writer’s city with a long tradition of distinctive literary subcultures. Long-established novelists such as David Lodge and Jim Crace have spent most of their writing lives here, and the city continues to support and inspire new generations of voices.

Bringing together fiction from some of the city’s most talented writers, both established and new, The Book of Birmingham (Comma Press) showcases and celebrates original and unusual writing, which captures various aspects and experiences of the city.

Hosted by editor Kavita Bhanot, this launch event will include readings from a fantastic line-up of Birmingham writers including C.D. Rose, Sharon Duggal, Malachi McIntosh and Jendella Benson.

This event is sponsored by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce.
