Book of Newcastle launch event
6th February 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The original Northern Powerhouse, the city of Newcastle has witnessed countless transformations over the last century or so, from its industrial heyday, when Tyneside engineering and innovation led the world, through decades of post-industrial decline, and lack of investment, to its more recent reinvention as a cultural destination for the North. The city has also always had an embarrassment of literary riches, with multi-awarding poets and novelists taking continual inspiration from its awe-inspiring architecture and crepuscular backstreets.
Join us for the launch of The Book of Newcastle, a new collection of stories showcasing some of Newcastle’s best and brightest writing talents, with a panel discussion featuring contributing authors Juliana Mensah, Margaret Wilkinson & Crista Ermiya.
