The Alternative Book Club

The Alternative Book Club is an unconventional comedy show about books where there is absolutely NO required reading.

This year they will bring their Sci Fi Special to Einstein’s Garden - prepare to be entertained – and informed – by a phenomenal line up of award-winning comics and brilliant friends. We’ve had all sorts of unexpected topics so far, including: Mike Fennell on the ups and downs of Joey Barton, Nick Page on the top twenty books he has read, not read, or is currently writing, Howard Butcher on ridiculous Byzantium history, Chelsea Birkby on Sartre’s Nausea and existentialism, Iona Craig on the bad writing habits of ‘war correspondents’, James Crawley on spoken word (and more). At Einstein’s Garden we will be dissecting anything Lit with a Sci Fi twist: from H. G. Wells's War of the Worlds to Marvel's blockbusting comics, and everything in between. All hosted by your host, Shirley Halse.
