EIBF: Daniel Gray on Fever Pitch (reading workshop and writers' retreat)

  • Writer's Retreat Edinburgh International Book Festival 5 Charlotte Square Gardens Edinburgh EH2 4DR (map)

Part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Fever Pitch is Nick Hornby's tribute to a lifelong obsession: football. Part autobiography, part comedy, his award-winning memoir captures the agony and ectasy of being an obsessed sports fan.

Join writer and social historian Daniel Gray for today's reading workshop to explore this funny, honest and perceptive book. Expect an open discussion from the start; you can read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.

Daniel Gray has written a number of titles published by Luath Press, including Homage to Caledonia: Scotland and the Spanish Civil War, Stramash: Tackling Scotland's Town and Teams, and This is Scotland: A Country in Words and Pictures

Part of the Sport and Society series of events.

Tickets for this event are £15/£12 concession, and are available from the EIBF event page.
