What happens on the night?

Twelve invited writers and book-people are each given five minutes to either read from their work or talk about a book-related subject that interests them. They will be around to answer any questions that the audience may have about books and book-nature. In between there will be food, drink, conversation, pitches and signings, and at least one really good argument about typefaces. Entrance is free but we’d really appreciate it if you bought some books. There will be books for sale.
