In Miniature with Simon Garfield
Wed 14 Nov 2018
7:00pm at Mr B's
Ticket includes author talk, glass of wine and signing and 15% off books on the night.
This November, we’re celebrating the joy of all things small but perfectly formed, as we welcome one of our favourite highly acclaimed non-fiction writers to the cosy (i.e. small, but perfectly formed!) Bibliotherapy room.
Simon Garfield is the brilliantly funny, wonderfully knowledgeable author of “Just my Type” – the ultimate book for font geeks (like Mr B’s Kate and Ed!), “On the Map”, “To the Letter” and the award-winning study of AIDS in Britain “The End of Innocence”.
Now, polymath Simon turns his pen to the topic of the miniature and our obsessive and eccentric human fascination with shrinking things down to size. “In Miniature” unveils the secret histories of tiny Eiffel Towers, the flea circus, eerie tableaux crime scenes and the bonkers YouTube miniature food trend (anyone for a teeny tiny lasagne?!).
Join us for what is sure to be a highly entertaining evening as Simon casts the greatness of the diminutive into the limelight.
Tickets £6 or £5 for students. Ticket price includes richly illustrated author talk and book-signing, a glass of wine and 15% off all books on the night.
