Book Slam Book Launch : Dan Rhodes, Katie Bonna, Richard Marsh, Aidan John Moffat, Tim Key, Francesca Beard
Gazumping the horror of Valentine's day, Book Slam has put together a celebration of the mistakes, disappointments and T&Cs of love to launch Dan Rhodes' brilliant new collection of stories, 'Marry Me'.
So far confirmed to join him on stage are Katie Bonna and Richard Marsh, introducing us to 'Dirty Great Love Story', which last year won an Edinburgh Fringe First; plus suitably downbeat music to keep you out of the mood from the exceptional Aiden Moffat, best known as one half of the erstwhile Arab Strap; and terse verse from those averse to what's worse from Book Slam's favourite flaneur, Tim Key.
Remember: investments do go down as well as up and your house may be at risk if you fail to make up repayments on any love secured on your property.
See bookslam.com/ for further information.
Richard is a Fringe First winner, London poetry slam champion and a son. One of the Time Out Cultural hot 100 2012, his play Skittles was broadcast on Radio 4 as Love & Sweets.
