πŸ“… FRIDAY 10 AUGUST 2018
πŸ•‘ 5.30pm-7pm
πŸ“ Engine Room at Old Fire Station
πŸ‘€ Hosted by Jonathan Ridnell

Spec fic, romance, horror and crime writers often speak out about the way "genre" and "literature" are judged - as though they are different and incompatible. We've lined up a panel of genre writers and experts and asked them to take sides on the topic: you can judge a book by its genre. Hosted by the Discovery Centre's Jonathan Ridnell, this debate is our lively, not-too-serious, celebration of the popularity and power of the best genre writing. The For-team: Jess Anastasi, Andrew Nette, Rachel Nightingale. The Against-team: Mark Brandi, Peter Pascoe, Angela Slatter. Expect the unexpected.
