Award-winning Bromsgrove author heading to Artrix for WORDS event

AWARD-WINNING Bromsgrove-born novelist Jonathan Coe will be talking about his work at the next WORDS event in the Studio at Artrix on Sunday (February 19).

Jonathan’s work has underlying preoccupation with political issues, often treated satirically and the world premiere of the stage version of his novel The Rotters Club took place last year.

The event, at 7.30pm next Sunday (February 19), is the first of many exciting evenings in 2017 for WORDS which is now in its 38th year.

Others include award-winning poet Daljit Nagara, world-leader on the English language David Crystal, Guardian journalist Lucy Mangan and Maureen Bell, a leading book historian.

Over the years WORDS has welcomed at Harris Brush, and more recently at Artrix, a wide range of men and women whose job is the written and spoken word – novelists, children’s writers and story tellers, poets, playwrights, critics and reviewers, historians, biographers, publishers, journalists and writers on travel, natural history, sport and politics.

From time to time a ‘WORDS EXTRA’ also takes place – the last one was Zadie Smith and this summer’s will feature multi-award winning radio and TV broadcaster Fi Glover.
