This event was an absolute blast and so cleverly organised! Between the live readings, music, crafty cocktails ("Thai Bride" was my favourite), and general surrounding of books, I was in heaven. Great crowd and vibe as well! Visited Waterstone's Piccadilly on 2015-10-03

I liked the performance space, and it was a great platform to connect with people and have a conversation with the authors who read. In the end, though, it became too crowded for the number of people present, and it was rather difficult to follow the readings, but that is specific to the kind of event taking place. Overall, I had a wonderful experience. Visited Waterstone's Piccadilly on 2015-10-03
