The people behind Faber Events, the publisher’s social arm, have adapted the cover of the recently published (and already quite acclaimed) Shall We Gather at the River, by Irish novelist Peter Murphy, for a forthcoming event in London.
Faber and arts-culture-angling-birdwatching-and-all-points-in-between site Caught By The River have joined forces for the event at The Social on Little Portland St, London W1 on Monday week (February 4th).
It will showcase a reading by Murphy from his alternative-Wexford-set novel, as well as other readings which seem connected by a watery theme, including former Booker-shortlisted Mick Jackson, Olivia Laing, Tom Bolton and Charles Rangeley-Wilson.
Perhaps most striking of all, the poster for the event (below) is based on the attention-grabbing cover of Shall We Gather at the River.
For more details, or to purchase a ticket (just £5 for pre-payers), visit the Faber events section. Shall We Gather at the River is available from all good bookstores, while you can check out Caught By The River for more ethereal stuff.
