Daunt Books Festival 2020

Max Porter with Alula Down


Thursday 19th March 2020
7:00pm – 8:00pm

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £10.00
including a glass of wine


We welcome Max Porter for a dramatic reading from Lanny, his strange and wonderful story about a village peopled by the living and the dead and about Lanny, a boy with a gift for friendship who leaves traces of enchantment in the closely woven lives around him. Lanny was longlisted for the Booker prize and is soon to be a film starring and produced by Rachel Weisz. It follows Max’s acclaimed 2015 debut, Grief is the Thing with Feathers.

‘It’s hard to express how much I loved Lanny. Books this good don’t come along very often’ Maggie O’Farrell

Herefordshire folk duo Alula Down will accompany the performance with a specially commissioned score – their work is an experiment in folk song and minimalism using voice, and instruments made of wood and reeds.
