The Limerickiad volume III: from Byron to Baudelaire
Thursday 24 Nov 18.30
With Martin Rowson

Join cartoonist, political satirist and author Martin Rowson for a bawdy night of limericks (and perhaps a glass of wine) 

Every week since 2006, the award-winning cartoonist and writer Martin Rowson has been making a fool of himself in The Independent on Sunday by reducing the work of some of the world's best-loved writers to a series of puerile limericks. Following the success of the first two volumes of The Limerickad (from Gilgamesh to Jane Austen) The Limerickiad volume III lays waste to the literary greats of the nineteenth-century.

Rowson mangles Melville, puts the boot into the Brontёs and defaces the complete works of Dickens. He even finds time to write a limerick in homage to its inventor ('When a runcible fellow called Lear...').

Gary Younge at Bookmarks
Tuesday 06 Dec 18.30
With Gary Younge

Join award winning political journalist, author and broadcaster Gary Younge at Bookmarks for an evening of discussion around his latest book, Another Day in the Death of America.

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. It was just another day in America; an unremarkable Saturday on which ten children and teens were killed by gunfire. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. White, Black and Latino, they fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news.

There was no outrage about their passing. It was just another day in the death of America, where on a daily average - seven children and teens are killed by guns...
