On this night there will be no sordid acts of sideshow freaks biting the heads off chickens to the baying of an appreciative and horrified audience..

Rather I will be at the Deptford Lounge in conversation with top authors and self-confessed geeks Mark Walden, Steve Feasey and Rohan Gavin.

Come along to find out why they are proud to be geeks, and how their love of games, gadgets and graphic novels inspires their writing.

This FREE event is supported by Bloomsbury Children’s Books and there will be a special book offer on the night. Each book will be on sale for £5 or guests can get all three for £10.

WHEN: May 13, 2014 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

WHERE: Deptford Lounge, Giffin Street London SE8 4RJ UK
