Thank goodness for this month's Bookslam is all we can say.
Following on from the success of Zadie Smith as last month's super secret guest, August's slam is keeping it real with Ekow Eshun (pictured), creative director of the ICA and author of the 'Black Gold Of The Sun', up with Mr Hudson and his own brand of "very English R 'n' B" (part Tony Bennett, part Tony Toni Toné) plus the poet/singer Zena Edwards. £2 before 8pm, then £5 @ Cherry Jam, 58 Porchester Road.
Join us next week as things are getting busy again...
