From Friday (to June 5), Stoke Newington hosts its second annual lit fest in venues around the ‘hood. Meet new and established writers (Henry Hemming, Alexi Sayle, Emma Kennedy, Arnab Chanda) and attend workshops on ‘The Life and Influence of Edgar Allan Poe’, ‘Beer & Book Matching’ and ‘So You Want to Write a Teen Novel?’, to name a few. ‘Tiddlypeeps’ can hear David Walliams who talks about new fable ‘Billionaire Boy’ and poet John Hegley whose hilarious songs and dotty poems maybe feature something about spectacles (or possibly not). Booking recommended for all events.
