A DIFFERENT KIND OF BOOKING

Damian Barr launched his Literary Salon in 2008 at Shoreditch House, London. Witty, intimate and welcoming, the Salon always premieres new work from a heady cocktail of emerging and established writers.

David Nicholls chose the Salon to launch One Day, Jojo Moyes unveiled Me Before You and Helen Fielding read printer-fresh pages of the new Bridget Jones. Other guests have included Caitlin Moran, Diana Athill, David Mitchell, Colm Toibin, Nick Frost, John Waters, Lionel Shriver, Taiye Selasi, John Lahr, Thomas Keneally and Bret Easton Ellis. With British Council support it’s touring the world and so far has delighted Berlin, Toronto, Istanbul, Moscow, Sydney, Sao Paolo and recently, New York City.  

Since Shoreditch House, Barr's literary salon has read aloud at the St Pancras Hotel, Great Eastern Hotel, Mondrian London, Ace New York and is currently calling home - the legendary Savoy Hotel in London. Follow them on Facebook for more. (photo : Daisy Honeybunn)
