Saturday 1st June: We Were Strangers – Stories Inspired by Unknown Pleasures


Formed in 1976 in Salford, Joy Division are one of the most influential and best-loved bands Britain has produced. They developed a unique sound and style that made them one of the pioneers of the late-1970s post-punk movement. The We Were Strangers anthology (Confingo publishing) delivers a thoughtful, absorbing and intense response almost 40 years on.

“These collected stories are achingly modern” The Guardian.

Featuring authors Richard V. Hirst, Sophie Mackintosh (Man Booker nominee), Jessie Greengrass (winner of the Edge Hill Prize), and David Gaffney.

Saturday 1st June, 12.45-1.30pm £4 / FREE
