Bad Language 2014
with Matt Haig & The Writing Squad
Manchester’s hottest live lit night, Bad Language, joins forces with The Writing Squad for a bumper MLF edition headlined by novelist Matt Haig. The bestselling author of The Radleys and The Last Family in England, Haig will read from new book The Humans, in which Professor Andrew Martin of Cambridge University solves the world’s greatest mathematical riddle – and then disappears, only to turn up walking naked along the motorway, consumed with loathing for the human race. The Times called it ‘wonderfully funny, gripping and inventive.’ The Writing Squad runs writing development programmes across the North, nurturing gifted young writers through workshops, mentoring, performances and creative partnerships. With the pick of the Bad Language collective’s roster of electrifying performers alongside emerging talent, expect an evening of fresh, original writing.
