Little Atoms live in Manchester

Join us for an evening of literature at the Anthony Burgess Foundation 

Little Atoms comes to Manchester: Join us for this live podcast on 25 September

Come and join us on 25 September at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester where Little Atoms radio host Neil Denny will be joined by authors Emma Jane Unsworth and Lee Rourketo discuss their recent works and how the city of Manchester has influenced them and their writing. The discussion will be followed by a reading from both Emma and Lee and end with an audience Q & A.

*Due to unforseen circumstances, Lee Rourke will not be taking part in this discussion. We are very grateful to Zoe Lambert for stepping in at the last minute to take Lee's place.

The Little Atoms Radio Show first launched in 2005. Ten years on, after a decade of interviews with some of the most interesting voices in politics, literature, science, art and comedy, Little Atoms branched out with a new online publication dedicated to intelligent, accessible writing on everything from deism to design, accompanied by regular live panel debates.

Where: International Anthony Burgess Foundations, Cambridge Street, Manchester, M1 5BY
