An Evening with Stella Duffy @ The Bookseller Crow
Nov 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:15 pm

Join us for an evening with the inspirational novelist, short-story writer, playwright and feminist activist Stella Duffy. After a show-stopping appearance on our crime writer’s panel in the spoken word tent stage at Crystal Palace Festival this summer we decided we had to have a whole night attributed to this passionate, funny, candid and energetic Kiwi-cum-South-Londoner. On top of her own writing projects she is the co-director of the Fun Palaces campaign for cultural democracy calling for a radical rethink of cultural policy in the UK and in 2016 was honoured with an OBE for her services to the arts.

Will Ashon – Chamber Music – Enter the Wu Tang @ The Bookseller Crow
Nov 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:15 pm

Will Ashon’s new book is about one of the most important albums of all time, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), and how it changed the world.

As unexpected and complex as the album itself, Chamber Music ranges from provocative essays to semi-comic skits, from deep scholarly analysis to satirical celebration, seeking to contextualise, reveal and honour this singularly composite work of art.

From the FBI’s war on drugs to the porn theatres of 42nd street, the history of jazz to the future of politics, Chamber Music is an explosive and revelatory new way of writing about music and culture.
