Join us as we co-host the next And Other Stories social, as we join the great folks from Egress, our favourite new literary magazine, and Sheffield’s best fiction publishing house to celebrate the launch of Christine Schutt’s PureHollywood, and the very first edition of Egress.

Christine Schutt’s fans include George Saunders and the late John Ashbery, and The Guardian recently called Pure Hollywood a ‘daring collection’.

Egress is published twice a year by the excellent independent publisher Little Island Press, and is edited by Little Island founder Andrew Latimer and Sheffield local David Winters. The first issue features a host of excellent writers including Diane Williams, Kathryn Scanlan, Eley Williams, Gordon Lish, David Hayden and our very own Christine Schutt.

We’ll be at Sentinel from 12-3pm on 10 June, and would love it if you could join us. Copies of Pure Hollywood and Egress will be available at a special price.

Our socials are a great way to meet other local literature lovers, to hear about what we’ve got coming up, tell us what you’ve got coming up, and just generally be part of Sheffield’s growing literary scene.

If you’ve not been to Sentinel before, it’s one of Sheffield’s best hang-out spots, with great, inexpensive food, and an incredible range of craft beers on tap, including their own (they do excellent coffee too).
