Daunt Books Festival

Daunt Books in Marylebone is one of London’s loveliest places to be, even more so during their 2-day festival. Hear a whole host of authors and writers reading extracts from their books and talking about their work, with wine, nibbles and treats provided from local haunts like Honey & Co, La Fromagerie etc. We’re particularly looking forward to Max Porter’s dramatic reading from Lanny which was longlisted for the Booker and is soon to be a film starring and produced by Rachel Weisz. The reading will be accompanied by Herefordshire folk duo Alula Down. Other highlights include Jonathan Shainin, head of Opinion at the Guardian in discussion with Patrick Radden Keefe about his book Say Nothing, a true crime story of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and Olivia Laing discussing her career writing on art and culture and her new book Funny Weather: Art in an Emergency. Book tickets ahead.
