Speak Easy at St Georges bookshop, 3 November

31st October 2010, Comments 0 comments

Free monthly read-around at St George’s bookshop, Berlin at 20:30.

3 November:  ‘SPEAK EASY’ – a monthly read-around at St George’s bookshop. The fridge was bust, the beer ran out and, frankly, last month’s ‘Speak Easy’  ended up madder than a bucketful of monkeys.

October’s bricolage included extracts from du Maurier’s ‘The Birds’ novella on which the Hitchcock film was based, Katherine Mansfield’s poem ‘Canary,’ D.H. Lawrence’s ‘Risen Lord,’ Faulkner’s ‘As I Lay Dying,’ Woodley’s ‘Drop Dead,’ ‘Sandburg’s ‘Half Way,’ ‘Solid Objects’ from Virginia Woolf, ‘Night,’ by the late Tony Judt, tasters from Jane Austen, Stephen King and Herman Melville, a paean to smoking from ‘How to be Idle,’ and a Draco/Harry sex scene that was just this side of emetic.

Wednesday 3rd November, 8.30 pm, Admission: FREE, Drinks: EUR 1.50, St George’s English Bookshop, Wörther Straße 27, 10405 Berlin, 030 81798333/ U2 Senefelderplatz, Trams M2 (Prenzlauer Allee/Marienburger Str.) or M10 (Prenzlauer Allee/Danziger Str.)
