IAIN SINCLAIR AND ALAN MOORE: WRITING AND PROTEST

Norfolk and Norwich Festival

IAIN SINCLAIR AND ALAN MOORE: WRITING AND PROTEST

MONDAY 14 MAY, 7.30PM

NORWICH PLAYHOUSE

The acclaimed writer Iain Sinclair is joined by graphic-novel legend Alan Moore for an evening of readings and conversation about art and protest. Sinclair, whose new book Ghost Milk is a remarkable critique of vanity and folly in the modern world, and Moore – creator of V for Vendetta, Watchmen and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – have a proud history of counter-cultural protest. This event is very much in keeping with Norwich’s history of dissent.

Event at Canada Water library in London on Mon 23/04/2012 at 19.30 (World Book Night)

Acclaimed author of Downriver (winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Encore Award), Iain Sinclair will be talking about his latest book Ghost Milk: Calling Time on the Grand Project.

In the book the author sets out from the East London Olympic site – a ruin in the making – on the trail of other recent Grand Projects. From the Athens Olympic zone, empty of life but for packs of feral dogs, to the abandoned monuments of Britain’s Millenium moment, Sinclair crosses territory and time like no other literary traveller, reporting back on the trouble to come.

This talk is in support of Book Aid International and part of the World Book Night celebrations at Canada Water library.

PLEASE NOTE: this event takes place at the Canada Water Culture Space at Canada Water Library
