Two acclaimed writers will share their views on what it means to be on the margins of contemporary Britain.

Sathnam Sanghera is an award-winning writer for The Times. His first book, The Boy with the Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton, was shortlisted for the 2008 Costa Biography Award and his latest offering, Marriage Material was chosen as one of Waterstones’ Best Fiction Debuts of 2013.

Damian Barr is a writer, playwright and creator/host of the Shoreditch House Literary Salon. His book Maggie and Me is a humorous and timely memoir of surviving Thatcher’s Britain.

Hear their perspectives, and share your views during what promises to be an insightful and thought-provoking discussion.

    If you're late it's not a big deal just go to the room where talk is and find any available seat.
