3. Savage Messiah Launch Party
Saturday 26th November, 7pm
Free entry

Laura Oldfield Ford has been producing her inimitable Savage Messiah zine since 2005, and Housmans have supported her work all the way, as she has us, so we’re delighted to host a party to celebrate the launch of the Verso-published collection of her zines to date. Laura has been all over London this month giving talks about the issues of gentrification and social exclusion raised in her work, but this event will be a party, with records playing, drinks flowing, and maybe the odd performance. I’m sure Laura will be signing copies of her book too. Feel free to bring a bottle.
