Free tickets to Writing on Houses featuring Alan Hollinghurst

Dabbler Book Club members! We have two free tickets to give away to you for Writing on Houses – Dwelling on Dwelling, an evening of discussion on 19th September at King’s Place in London about the relationship between houses and literature involving Alan Hollinghurst (author of the Book Club’s choice for August), Andrew Motion and Rowan Moore. 

What’s it about?

Whether providing inspiration, patronage or refuge, houses have for centuries influenced the art of writing. And with poetry, essay and novels enjoying their own internal architecture, the relationship could be said to be a formal one, too. Join former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, Man Booker Prize winner, Alan Hollinghurst, and Observer architecture critic, Rowan Moore, to discuss the idea of houses and literature, through history and imagination, and their enduring exchange.

It’s organised by our friends at Macmillan, who have kindly provided these tickets to members of The Dabbler Book Club.

One of the editors having been present at his local butchers when Mr Motion popped in to order a few chops, we would recommend attending just to hear the poet’s impressive tones. Never have chops sounded so elevated.

If you want a chance to win, Dabbler Book Club members need to email , putting ‘Writing Houses’ on the subject line, before 5pm on 31st August. Joining The Dabbler Book Club is easy and free – just fill in the form at the bottom of The Dabbler Book Club page.
