Literary Speed Dating

A night bibliographical brilliance and short story shenanigans

The beauty of speed dating lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and single guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex. Literary Speed Dating uses pretty much the same method. Roughly four minutes to chat to each person before moving on to the next, but this time let's talk books. Be prepared to defend Buckowski's misogyny, praise George Eliot's economy of phrase and challenge contemporary views of JK Rowling, as you let your chosen literary aid steer your conversation. As you mark down whether your potential suitors are a "match", "friend" or a "best not", you are also invited to mark whether the recommended books are to be read or binned. But one question remains; will you find love, laughter or legitimate cause for intellectual angst between the pages of your date? Age Guide: 25-40. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. Please note: there are Male Only and Female Only tickets.
