From the blurb:
In Being Dad, fifteen contemporary writers – all fathers themselves – explore the highs and lows of fatherhood. From protective instincts gone awry to the ghosts of our fathers haunting every parenting decision, these short stories shine a light on what it means to be a father in the twenty-first century.
Well, Being Dad is out in the world and readers have been tweeting about receiving copies. which means it is time to shout about the official launch taking place over the next week. First up is the Norwich launch which is being celebrated on Saturday 9th April with an evening of readings from Being Dad at the beautiful Dragon Hall, home of the Norwich Writers Centre. Four local Norwich writers, Lander Hawes, Iain Robinson, Andrew McDonnell, and Tim Sykes, will be joined by Nikesh Shukla and myself. Refreshments and books will be available, and we will be signing after the readings. The event kicks off at 5pm, all are welcome and entry is free – click here to reserve your place.
And Nikesh Shukla will also be holding a prose fiction masterclass earlier in the day where you can explore the pleasures, pitfalls and possibilities of writing from personal experience, before celebrating with Nikesh and fellow writers in the evening. The details of Nikesh’s workshop can be found here.
The London launch will follow on the evening of Monday 11th April at the Library Private Members Club.
