Information:

Join the Bristol Cable and author D Hunter for a reading and discussion about his book Chav Solidarity.

RSVP HERE: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-cable-presents-chav-solidarity-book-reading-tickets-69029815035

Chav Solidarity is described as “part autobiography, part meditation on trauma, class and identity, part one finger salute into the face of respectability politics, but mostly an articulation of the contradictory heart of chavvy sh*t heads across the U.K.”

Hunter uses his experiences as child sex worker, teenage crack addict, violent thug and community activist (in his words) to examine the ways in which our classed experiences shape the ways in which we think and do our politics.

Hunter will read excerpts from the book, as well as discussing its origins and surrounding issues. As with all Cable events, there’ll also be a chance for a Q&A and open discussion about the subjects raised.

This Cable event is open to all – members and non-members. Tickets are free/£3 respectively. We’re expecting this to sell out so please do reserve a ticket in advance! Left over tickets will be available for cash on the door.

Doors open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
