Literary Bites is a new initiative by Words of Colour Productions, connecting aspiring scribes with published writers over great food.
At each event, an established author will read from and discuss their work over a carefully sourced and quality menu that is affordably priced. Guests will also be able to network with other budding writers as well as be part of a memorable literary experience.
We are pleased to announce that the award-winning crime writer Dreda Say Mitchell will headline our launch event on Wednesday 5 December 2012 from 7pm-9.30pm in the Orchid Lounge at Yum Yum, an award-winning Thai restaurant in Stoke Newington, London.
Dreda, award-winning author of the acclaimed Geezer Girl and Hit Girls, will read from her work, talk about her journey from working in education to writing bestsellers, and will network with guests. There will also be an opportunity to win a signed copy of one of her novels.
