MAX PORTER READS GRIEF IS THE THING WITH FEATHERS
For one night only, Max Porter will read his award-winning novel Grief is the Thing with Feathers live from Islington’s iconic Union Chapel into your home.
This one-off event is a fundraiser for the beloved London venue and Margins, the chapel's homelessness charity.
Grief is the Thing with Feathers is a bed-time story for grown-ups about the universal experience of loss. It is about childhood, parenting, poetry, pain and the infinite wisdom of crows. Dark, weird and beautiful, it is the perfect book for these times. It is an impassioned blast of literature and love, a celebration of language, and a raging heartbroken song for all of us.
Max Porter’s novel has been translated into 30 languages and adapted into a play starring Cillian Murphy, but it has never been read in public, in its entirety, by the author. Join us as Max reads his own words in this very special event.
