2 Wednesday 19 February THE BIG READ Sathnam Sanghera Marriage Material 7.30 for 8pm Join us for a Big Read event with Sathnam Sanghera, a writer and journalist who writes regularly for The Times. Sathnam will be discussing his debut novel Marriage Material which tells the story of three generations of a Sikh family who run a Wolverhampton corner shop. Taking inspiration from Arnold Bennett s classic novel The Old Wives Tale, the book offers an insight into the life of an immigrant community, and the wish to pull away from tradition among the family s younger generation. Sathnam will also make reference to his first book, The Boy with the Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton, which was shortlisted for the 2008 Costa Biography Award. Marriage Material has been selected by Waterstones as one of their fiction debuts of 2013 and is published by William Heinemann, hardback; The Boy with the Topknot is published by Penguin, 7.99 paperback. Both books will be for sale on the evening and Sathnam will be signing copies afterwards. Sathnam Sanghera The Boy with the Topknot Penguin Books 2009 ; Marriage Material William Heinemann 2013 Friday 21 February FLASH FICTION WORKSHOP 2pm How to write Flash Fiction will be led by Dan Powell, a prize-winning author of flash and short fiction. This fast paced session will focus on the unique challenge and pleasure to be found in the crafting of short-short stories. You will explore both what makes an exciting piece of flash fiction and how to take an idea and shape a story small in size but expansive in impact. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced writer, learning how to tell a story in the smallest of word counts is a useful skill to add to your writing repertoire and this workshop will encourage you to be creative and have fun with the form. You will leave with a finished story and a list of the publications and prizes currently seeking submissions. Dan s debut collection, Looking Out of Broken Windows, is published by Salt in February 2014, Copies of the book will be for sale at the event. Places will be very limited: please apply early to avoid disappointment. If demand is high a second workshop 20 may run on the morning of Saturday, 22 February.
