Two interesting events coming up at 26, the writers' organisation of which I'm a director.
The first is the 26 Annual Lecture with Oona King, former Labour MP (famously ousted by Respect's George Galloway) and now Head of Diversity at Channel 4. It takes place at the British Library on 8 October 2009 and tickets are available here. Well worth coming along, not only for the speech itself, but also because it's a good 26 social event and everyone tends to be there. (We blogged about last year's lecture here.)
The second is an exhibition called 26 Exchanges, in association with International PEN. It takes place from 21-25 September at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London and combines the writing talents of various 26 and PEN members with the design skills of Harry Pearce at Pentagram and Sanky at All Of Us. Pretty good line-up then. And it's open to all.
