Visiting author - Christopher Priest, author of The Prestige


Author Christopher Priest will be speaking to Spectrum on Thursday 29th August starting at 5pm. His 1995 fantasy novel, The Prestige, was made into a film featuring Scarlett Johansson and Christian Bale (

He's going to be talking about the craft of writing inspired by his autographical guide Ersatz Wines.

He's a really friendly guy, keen to answer questions and has a lovely writing style. We're very lucky to have him as he only visits London infrequently (hence the timing)!

Please come along and give him a huge welcome! Hardback copies of Ersatz Wines will be available with a discount on the day.

We are charging £5 for this event to pay for the costs of snacks/refreshments for Christopher as well as a 'thank you' gift.
