If you are stuck for something to do on Monday 14th September, pop into Stokey Books for a reading of a powerful debut novel by emerging Stoke Newington talent, Alistair Morgan.
Sleeper’s Wake is being published by Granta who are expecting great things from Alistair in future so come along and be one of the first to hear him read.
The reading starts at 8:00pm and is hosted by the N16 Writers and Readers group. Cost is a bargain £2.50 which includes a glass of wine.
D.C. Pae is a young author here in Stoke Newington, whose first novel, The Imperium of Steves, is coming out from Quartet Books on Thursday, 26 March (and the lovely people at Stoke Newington Bookshop have promised to stock it.) Getting published isn’t easy of course, so I caught up with her to see if I could get some advice for all you aspiring authors out there.

How long have you lived in Stokey?
I’ve lived in Stoke Newington on and off since I was at University, so 11 years, via East and West London. I always end up gravitating back. It has a great, relaxed atmosphere and the locals are nice, of course!
