The Coexist Community Kitchen: Around The Table with Charlie Carroll

September 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+1

Around The Table is a new Bristol Ideas series where writers discuss their work, ideas and inspiration over food. The first host is the Coexist Community Kitchen, a non-profit cookery school in Easton.

Charlie Carroll’s debut novel, The Lip, is about childhood, isolation and mental health. Set in the Cornwall that tourists seldom see and many novelists choose to overlook, it depicts the other Cornwall, the second-poorest region in all of northern Europe – a Cornwall indebted to tourists and holidaymakers for its livelihood, but resentful at their intrusion. Carroll writes movingly about life on the edge and the consequences of social injustices.

In conversation with Bristol Ideas’ Zoe Steadman-Milne, Carroll discusses the themes of the novel and his other writing, touching on topics including homelessness, alternative living and raising social awareness.

Please arrive at 18:30 for the conversation between Charlie and Zoe. Then join a more informal discussion over a light dinner inspired by Cornwall and ingredients from the South West. The food will all be vegetarian but please contact ari@coexistuk.org for any dietary requirements. The evening ends at 20:30.

Light dinner, soft drinks, tea and coffee included in the ticket price. Bring your own wine or beer, no corkage charged.

Price: £15.
