Join us at POLARI, a blend of thought, humour and passion at this midsummer outing of the beloved literary salon featuring an appearance by KENRIC’s very own Stephanie Dickinson, who will be reading from the Anthology ‘We want to tell you how..’

Author Lesley Thomson headlines this edition of Polari, following the release of her latest novel The Death Chamber. Her novel A Kind of Vanishing won The People’s Book Prize in 2010. The Detective’s Daughter series has sold over 750,000 copies.

Also reading from their latest works are Patrick Horrigan, Babirye Bukilwa, David Kerby-Kendall and Stephanie Dickinson, who will be introducing ‘We Want To Tell You How . . .’ the anthology of poetry and short stories by lesbian authors.

Polari is a mixed gay Literary Salon hosted by author and journalist Paul Burston. It’s held in the 5th Floor Function Room (Green side) which has fabulous views over the floodlit London Eye and the river.

Tickets: £5 (unreserved seating) available from the ticket desk at the RFH or online at: www.southbankcentre.co.uk

We will meet at 7pm in the café area at the front of the RFH. (We will go up to the 5th floor at 7:10pm so anyone arriving after that should make their way upstairs. Take the lift on the Green side to the 5th floor and turn right.)
