[18.3.06][Andrew Gallix] THE NEW FITZROVIA Author and pub connoisseur (so what's new?) Paul Ewen has joined forces with the Sohemian Society and representatives of the so-called Offbeat Generation (who feel increasingly out of sync with the mainstream publishing and art worlds) -- Scarecrow mavericks Lee Rourke and Matthew Coleman along with 3:AMers like A. Stevens or, well, me -- to bring you a new series of cool-but-relaxed literary events called Through a Glass Darkly.
Come and tread in Julian MacLaren-Ross's footsteps at the Wheatsheaf pub (24 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia, upstairs room) in London on Thursday 13 April at 7.30pm for the Through a Glass Darkly launch. New Puritan novelist Matt Thorne, 3:AM Book of the Year laureate (and poster boy of the Offbeat Generation) Tom McCarthy, internet heroine Heidi James and the aforementioned Lee Rourke and Paul Ewen will all read from works set, appropriately enough, in London pubs. Be there or be sober. [permalink]
