Merky Books Live on Wednesday 7th November 2018
#Merky Books is a platform set up by Stormzy and Penguin Random House to find a new generation of readers and writers. Whose stories are being heard? And what power does a book really have? Be the first to hear Stormzy's thoughts as he tackles these questions and more in a wide-ranging conversation with award-winning hip-hop artist and writer Akala. Chelsea Kwakye, Jude Yawson and other special guests will also be exploring the role of literature in our lives, in a dynamic panel-discussion.
The event will also celebrate some of the most exciting new voices of today and give a platform to the voices of tomorrow, in a spoken word showcase curated by Stormzy and performance poetry and spoken word organisation Apples and Snakes. #Merky Books Live provides an opportunity for audience members to interact with a game-changing new player in publishing.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to be a part of the #Merky Books story.
Every ticket to #Merky Books Live includes a copy of Rise Up (RRP 16.99).
