Zadie Smith shortlisted for the Booker Prize

Posted by on September 8 at 17:00 PM

Zadie Smith’s new novel On Beauty has been shortlisted for England’s biggest prize. I’ve read the book. It’s awesome. So we’re producing an event around it. Mark your calendar: The Stranger is presenting an event with Zadie Smith on Friday, October 7 at Neumo’s. It will be a reading, there will be music involved, and there will be another special guest from out of town. Also, magically, it will be free.

Check the paper in coming weeks for more details.
