Book launch: Children of Las Vegas by Timothy O’Grady

17th June 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£3

‘Las Vegas is what we ask it to be. It moves through sequences of twenty-four hour instant gratification and debt and anaesthesia.’

In this book writer Timothy O’Grady collects together 10 stories about growing up in the world’s playground, illustrating the best and the worst of the city. We hear of the city’s hustler spirit from Nevada, son of casino owner, and of the strain the glimmering lights put on family ties from Alesha, a childcare worker. All the stories are accompanied by images by photographer and long-time collaborator Steve Pyke.

Timothy O’Grady is the author of a number of books, including I Can Read the Sky, winner of the Encore award. He will be reading from the stories and taking questions.

£3, includes a glass of wine
