Author Nikesh Shukla comes to Bristol Central Library
Release date: Tue, 25/09/2012
Author Nikesh Shukla will be dropping in at Bristol Central Library on Wednesday, October 3 at 6pm, to read from his work and take questions.
Author of the highly acclaimed novels Generation Vexed, and Coconut Unlimited, Shukla's witty style, wordplay and singular take on street culture has created a strong network of followers.
Coconut Unlimited was described by Metro as "a riot of cringeworthy moments made real by Shukla’s beautifully-observed characters and talent for teen banter".
His writing has also featured on BBC 2 and Radio 4, in Esquire and on the Channel 4 Comedy Lab ‘Kabadasses’, starring Jack Doolan, Josie Long and Shazad.
Nikesh will be reading from his work at the event and taking questions from the audience. Tickets priced £3 are available on the door on a first-come, first-served, basis.
Councillor Guy Poultney, Cabinet Member for Communities said: "Bristol Libraries continue to attract top writing talent to the city. This promises to be a fantastic event with one of the country's most exciting young authors. It's brilliant to be able to welcome him to the city."
Further information about the event is available from Asif Khan, Library Community Engagement Manager, on 0117 903 7218
