“N.” at Stoke Newington Literary Festival - Saturday 5 June 4pm

This year is the 75th anniversary of "N" by Arthur Machen. To celebrate this Stoke Newington resident Stewart Lee (recently promoted from 41st to 12th best stand-up of all time) drops the comedy to bring us a unique event in which he reads from 'N', a short story set in Stoke Newington by novelist, mystic and pioneering psychogeographer Arthur Machen, who wrote what Stephen King calls "maybe the best horror stories ever written." In conjunction with the Literary Festival and the Friends of Arthur Machen, Tartarus Press is publishing a short run paperback of "N" with illustrations by Stephen J. Clark.

You can book for the event online here:

Held at Stoke Newington International Airport
