In a Land of Paper Gods
March 24, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Rebecca Mackenzie will be giving a performed reading from her debut novel, In a Land of Paper Gods, alongside composer and musician Reynaldo Young at the wonderful Pages of Hackney. The novel is selected as an Observer Fiction Highlight for 2016 and it would be brilliant to see you there for an evening of percussion, text, song and imagination as we journey through the novel’s vividly realised world.
