Boston Tea Party


Student ticket:

How does our gender define our relationship to reading? And are books aimed at particular readerships? Join us for an experimental event exploring the link between what and how we read. We’ll be encouraging readers to read books by authors CC MacDonald and CJ Tudor, asking them to promise not to look up their gender, then we’ll chat with them and Professor Helen Taylor, author of Why Women Read Fiction, to discover why a book should never be judged by its cover or content.

First 30 people to book: receive a free copy of one of the books from Waterstones on presentation of ticket!
