Arnolfini's bookshop has long been known as one of Bristol's best independent bookshops and we're delighted to launch this new series of talks and performances in our Front Room.

This regular series features writers whose work connects to Arnolfini's commitment to exploring the state of the nation, the voices that have gone unheard and the stories that have until now remained untold. 

The talks take place in our Front Room on the ground floor which houses Arnolfini's library of art and design books. You are welcome to purchase drinks in advance of the talk and bring them to the Front Room. Space is limited so advance booking is advised. 

Concessions available and under 18s go free.

Barney Norris

Author of the critically acclaimed Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, Barney Norris will read from his new novel, Turning for Home, and discuss his forthcoming play at London's Bridge Theatre, Nightfall in conversation with Arnolfini Director, Claire Doherty.

Barney’s best-selling debut novel, Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, was called a ‘state of the nation novel’, and ‘deeply affecting’ by the Guardian and was shortlisted for prizes including the RSL Ondaatje Prize and Debut of the Year at the British Book Awards. He is the Martin Esslin Playwright in Residence at Keble College, Oxford and his new play Nightfall is one of the three inaugural productions at Nicholas Hytner’s new Bridge Theatre, beginning April this year.
