Join us at the Archway With Words book festival for a selection of new writings, readings and films by Michael Smith.
Michael Smith is the author of several novels (Giro Playboy, Unreal City, and Shorty Loves Wing Wong for Faber & Faber), but his work also explores how writing can enrich other media – he’s made an album of music & spoken word with Andrew Weatherall, written and presented critically acclaimed, poetic documentaries such as “Drivetime” and “Citizen Smith” for BBC4, as well as dozens of shorts for The Culture Show. More and more, he also directs his own films: experimental, literary pieces he likes to imagine as “video-poems.”
Michael will introduce and talk about some of his personal favourites, as well as giving us sneak previews of two new pieces – a film he’s been collaborating on with filmmaker Maxy Bianco, as well as reading from his new literary project, a piece about the mystery and romance of the seaside, and the first thing he’s written since becoming a dad.
This is the opening event for the Archway With Words literary festival and is followed at the same venue by a David Bowie night, so pffffff…
Thursday 13th October / 7pm-8:30pm / Koli’s Nightclub (round the back and above the Achway Tavern), 1 Archway Rd, N15 3TD / Tickets are £5 on the door or from the link provided.
