Zadie is coming to Bromsgrove’s Artrix. s

BROMSGROVE’S Words will play host to multi-talented Zadie Smith at the town’s Artrix tonight (Friday).

Zadie is an internationally acclaimed writer, novelist, essayist and short-story writer and the author of White Teeth, The Autograph Man, On Beauty and NW.

As a child she was fond of tap dancing, as a teenager she considered a career as an actress in musical theatre and as a university student she earned money as a jazz singer and wanted to become a journalist.

In 2010, The Guardian newspaper asked Smith for her ‘ten rules for writing fiction’.

Among them she declared were ‘Tell the truth through whichever veil comes to hand – but tell it’ and ‘resign yourself to the lifelong sadness that comes from never being satisfied’.

Those who go along will be in for an entertaining evening.

Tickets, at £12 (£6 students), are available by visiting www.artrix.co.uk or by calling 01527 577330.
