Books Showoff 5 – September 28th, Waterstones TCR

Remember that guy who got locked in a Waterstones for the evening and just spent the whole time tweeting to be let out?

If you were shut in the Tottenham Court Road branch, there’s no way you’d be so eager. Along with a zillion books, there’s a basement with cake, cocktails, AND (on the 28th September) loads of lovely literary types being funny and clever for your benefit.

GET TICKETS from the Waterstones website!

Becky Littlechilds – Becky’s going to talk about the sub-cultural behemoth I Kissed Dating Goodbye, the magical Good, spiritual orgasms, and the Celibacy Crusade.
