UEA Live presents Tash Aw

This event will take place at Cafe Bar Marzano, in the Forum.

A series of Live Literature events from the University of East Anglia run in collaboration with Writers’ Centre Norwich.

Join us for the second season of UEA Live; a series of free readings by established writers who are all graduates of UEA’s Creative Writing Programmes. The established writers will be supported by current Creative Writing undergraduates, bringing together talented writers at all stages of their careers for your delectation. 

The events are a chance to enjoy quality writing in a relaxed atmosphere as well as the chance to chat to each other and the writers over a drink (or two). 

There’s no need to book, just turn up on the night to enjoy readings from Tash and selected undergraduate Creative Writing students. We look forward to seeing you there.

Tash Aw graduated from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) in 2003.  His first novel, The Harmony Silk Factory, was published in 2005 and won the Whitbread First Novel Award and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Novel and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.  His second novel, Map of the Invisible World, was published in 2009 and his most recent novel, Five Star Billionaire, was longlisted for the 2013 Booker.  His fiction has been translated into 23 languages.
