***UPDATE SUNDAY 15 SEPTEMBER: Our September Salon is now sold out and unfortunately no tickets will be available on the door. Email us at [email protected] to join the mailing list for news about future Pamflet events***
On Wednesday 18 September from 7-9.30pm we’ll host our third event of the summer, GENERATION F: the Pamflet Salon with Judith Mackrell, author of Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation at Drink, Shop & Do.
Judith is the Guardian’s dance critic and has written several biographies and books including The Oxford Dictionary of Dance. She’s brought her vast expertise to Flappers, her brilliant expose of the six best dancing/drinking broads of the 1920s.
The lives of Josephine Baker, Tallulah Bankhead, Diana Cooper, Nancy Cunard, Zelda Fitzgerald and Tamara de Lempicka – all ‘It girls’ of their age – are laid out in fascinating detail so the reader can see why they captured the essence of the ’20s and ’30s with their boundary-smashing, charismatic personalities. It’s a fascinating read and we can’t wait to ask Judith about these compelling women, the society they came of age in, and how things are different (or not) today.
Judith’s talk and Q&A will be followed by a book club discussion on Therese Anne Fowler’s Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, a fictional retelling of the life of the original flapper/muse/icon.
Praise for Flappers: ‘Good, dirty fun’ Sunday Telegraph / ‘Hugely entertaining’ Irish Times
