We’re delighted to host the launch event for Bradford-based author Michael Stewart’s first collection of short stories, ‘Mr Jolly’. The award-winning novelist has produced his most extraordinary writing to date in these tales, each one offering a unique, utterly compelling insight into the human condition, framed by a mind-bendingly original concept that no other writer working today could – or indeed would – have concocted. Come along to find out more and to get your hands on a copy.

There will be a special offer in place which includes the book, cake and a coffee for £10. Please enquire at the venue on the day.
